I have access to an x-ray. I have a +Nexus 4  with a charging orb. Why not?

Looks really cool but is it still working though after that.
 
Fantastic stuff! Nice to see the inductive loop and the size of the NFC coil on the device. 
 
This is really a great way to see & understand how things are designed & how they work. Thank you for doing this & posting the pics

No, xrays don't damage electronics. The amount of energy used to produce these radiographs is fairly low anyways. Theoretically, extremely high amounts of electromagnetic radiation can probably destroy just about anything, but that is nowhere near the amount used here.
 
+Andy Salinas is correct. The x-ray we use was made for circuit board analysis, but we also use it for larger metal and ceramic parts. The phone was actually on when the images were taken, and works just fine.
 
Would it be possible to xray it in a position and in such detail that we could use it as a wallpaper? 1280 X 768. kind of like image 7 & 8 but on a single picture?
 
How the electric waves travel to charge the phone?
 
Thanks for sharing. Awesome work
 
+Joshua Perry Your X-ray thingy is clearly broken, since I can't see the magnets everbody swears are in the orb </snark>
 
+Ricardo Cerqueira there aren't any magnets inside, if you watch the hands on review over at Engadget they bring attention to this fact that it only grips to the glass. 
 
+Govind Singh, The charger turns those electric waves to magnetic fields which is then converted back to electric energy.

+Ricardo Cerqueira, +Kevin Kennedy, See those spiral thingies in the orb? Those are the magnets. Well, they're electromagnets which means they are just simple coils of wires when there's no electric current. Another coil of wire is in the phone too but they're used to turn the magnetic field back to electricity.
 
The spiral thingies are called inductors.@RicardoCerqueira that was simplest explanation of Lenz Law and Faraday Law I've ever heard. Great job.  
 
Brilliant! Thank you for sharing!
