I think I read somewhere that Dell was creating a wireless laptop charger but I haven't heard anything about it in the consumer market. Is this something that will be available in the next year? Are there other options?

Dell is releasing a wireless business laptop that charges wirelessly, the Dell Latitude Z. See

Tech Radar's article

and

Dell's Product Guide Details

It works with a dock that the laptop has to be on or near to charge wirelessly...it is expensive, around $1,800 and up! To answer your question, in theory it is open to the consumer market, but only for this laptop, and those with a lot of $$$ and price range...

Thanks, looks like I'll be waiting a few more years for something more available and affordable. –  Gabe Jun 28 '10 at 1:34
    
yup...meanwhile, they have wireless charging for the iPhone/iPod Touch... and a few other small devices... :) –  studiohack Jun 28 '10 at 3:31

There are consumer-ready devices available, but I don't believe any have the power to charge a laptop battery yet.
