Sublime power pebble.
Feng Shui charging station...without the wires.
After a hard day’s work Instagramming, texting and trawling through Facebook, rest you phone in harmony atop this wireless charging pebble.
The secret behind this phone stand is the Adafruit QI wireless charging transmitter housed inside it.
No one can deny the interest and cool factor of wireless charging!
This isn't really one for apple fans for the time being (as the iPhone requires case plugged into the phone to draw power from the wireless transmitter - really defeating the aim of wireless charging, in my humble opinion anyway) .
However an increasing number of smartphones being released onto the market already come with QI charging, capabilities built in!
The google nexus 4, nexus 5, nexus 6 and 7.
HTC Droid DNA & 8x.
The Motorola Droid Maxx & droid mini.
....and the Nokia Lumia 920, 928, 929, 930, 1020 and 1050 are a small selection on the list of compatible smartphones.
- If you own a relatively new smartphone and aren't sure, google the model - along with 'QI charging compatibility' to find out.
Personally, I'm fascinated by the wireless technology becoming available.
Although its only short range - still quite a novelty to see QI devices charging, as if by magic!
I modelled my power pebble using solidworks -
