In a world where the energy demands have outnumbered the available power sources, the importance of power saving technologies is supreme.

 Now there's a a study conducted by the University of Washington in which a unique system has been devised through which energy consumption through Wi-Fi can be significantly reduced.

A group of computer scientists and electrical engineers from the University of Washington have developed a new Wi-Fi system, called as Passive Wi-Fi, which consumes less 1,000 times less power than existing energy-efficient wireless communication platforms. They have demonstrated a method  through which it is possible to generate Wi-Fi transmissions with 10,000 times less power that current systems.  

The technology has also been named one of the 10 breakthrough technologies of 2016 by MIT Technology Review. The project was jointly funded by the National Science Foundation, the University of Washington and Qualcomm.
