Wireless Charging: One Step Closer (part 2)

May 28, 2010 Leave a comment

One of my interests is to check on businesses that come up with simple, smart, decent and price-worth solutions to really help solving our practical issues. One issue for me is that no matter how cool the device could be, every time I look at all the wires winding together behind, I felt like stone-age. That is why I come back to the topic.

On Wireless Charging: One Step Closer to the Dream (part 1) we’ve introduced PowermatTM Wireless Charging System: multiple (up to 3) gadgets (like iPhone, Blackberry) lay on mat and get charged through the ‘touch’, not wires.

Innovation is everywhere and when technology, gadget and design get more and more intertwined, given a bit of tasty touch, it would become just irresistible. Take a look of some the collections here.

1) Sexy gadget – the Vivienne Tam HP Laptop.

It is a full functional laptop with a delicate butterfly design. And where would be a better place to showcase this sexy gadget other than T-stage? Make a guess. Yes, Carrie would be writing her famous relation reflexions with it in the next ‘Sex and the City’ movie! I wouldn’t be surprised if it sweeps the feet of many women while they are reaching for their wallet. HP seems to be confident in this future cashflow. No wonder it is getting many step on acquisitions recently, including the newly announced $1b Palm deal. But that’s another issue.

Imagine yourself on a late Sunday morning sitting in the usual branch café tasting your first morning coffee. Now you enjoy the comfy and coziness but not too sloppy. Well you whisper to your friends on phone about yesterday’s party through a nice s-shaped earing; now the hot pine-cake come, so you wrap up the dialogue, fold the earing with a light touch into an elegant ring and put it back to your point finger. Then it’s the usual newspaper time. So you take out a thin semi-transparent e-newspaper and scrolling the displayed content you’ve subscribed; then your fold it as any normal newspaper to the ease of use. Unlike normal newspapers, you can continue with your old reading hobby while remain fingers ink-free and the e-newspaper would always be folded nice and tidy even after all the reading has done.

Look at this Power Purse, designed by doctroal student Jo Hynek.  It combines ‘fashion-friendly’ solar panels with a handbag to ensure you’ve always got power to charge your cell phones and mp3 players. I love the concept to apply the technology to some pocketable consumer products.
