1. A system for wireless energy transfer comprising:

  • a transmitter unit including a first electromagnetic resonator having a first coil configured to wirelessly transmit power through a magnetic flux, wherein the first coil is rigidly shaped to form a first outline of a first surface; and

    a receiver unit including a second electromagnetic resonator having a second coil configured to wirelessly receive power through the magnetic flux, wherein the second coil is rigidly shaped to form a second outline of a second surface;

    wherein at least one of the first surface or the second surface is a non-planar surface occupying three spatial dimensions, and wherein the non-planar surface shapes the magnetic flux to wirelessly transfer power when the rigidly shaped first coil and second coil and physically decoupled and freely movable relative to each other.
