I was reading about WiTricity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WiTricity) a technology developed by MIT to wirelessly transmit electricity through resonance, and I have this question:
Given the phenomenon of resonant inductive coupling which wikipedia defines as:
the near field wireless transmission of electrical energy between two coils that are tuned to resonate at the same frequency. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resonant_inductive_coupling
And the Schumann resonances of the earth ( ~7.83Hz, see wikipedia), would it be theoretically possible to create a coil that resonates at the same frequency or one of it's harmonics (7.83, 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz) to generate electricity?
I have a feeling that these wavelengths may be too big to capture via resonance (they are as large as the circumference of the earth if I understand it correctly), so alternatively would it be possible to create a coil that resonates with one of the EM waves that the sun sends our way?
