Wireless Electricity for Villages?

Slashdot discusses a Sunday Times story about how “scientists have successfully applied the technology used in microwave ovens to beam electricity without the need for unsightly pylons and overhead cables.” A prototype has illuminated a handful of light bulbs and they expect to be able to power a remote village within three years, according to the story.

This could be extremely useful for rural areas in India, where power shortages are the norm.
