Astonishing Statement of the Day

In announcing a system of wireless electric transmission, proposed to send energy to devices in both homes, businesses, and in large public spaces, an Intel spokesman said:

"The trick with wireless power is not can you do it; it's can you do it safely and efficiently," Intel researcher Josh Smith said in an online video explaining the breakthrough.

"It turns out the human body is not affected by magnetic fields; it is affected by elective fields. So what we are doing is transmitting energy using the magnetic field not the electric field."

What alternate universe do these people live in? Oh yeah, the Corporate Greed Universe.

(I'm choosing to not play with the typo about "elective fields.")
