Furniture for Smartphones

By Jamie Hall 10.16.2015 blog

We tend to think of furniture as being pretty straightforward — dressers store our clothes, tables hold up our food. But soon, thanks to a new wave of “smart” furniture, these formerly standard items may have a higher purpose.

At the front of this movement is the furniture company¬†Ikea, which just released a new line of furniture with charging pads built right in. Simply place your device on top of the plus sign located on the piece, and your phone starts charging up, same as if you’d plugged it into the wall. The pieces, including a table and a desk, are completely wireless, which means no more hunting for a cord when your phone dwindles down to 3 percent.

Unfortunately, there are still a lot of devices that don’t have wireless charging built in, like the iPhone, so it may be a while before you swap out your nightstand for a new one. However, many analysts predict that this is the next wave in multi-functional technology.

    I think that it is the next big thing because some people need their phone charged and if they lose their charger to charge their phone.
