Every once in awhile a product comes to market that makes you think “Why didn’t I think of that?” The FurniQi is one of those products.
Today the FurniQi , the Wireless Charging Bamboo Side Table, started their Indiegogo campaign. The FurniQi is a wireless charging table and the first in a range of products designed to combine stylish furniture with wireless charging for smart devices. For a while now wireless charging has made it easier for consumers to charge any device and now incorporating that function into furniture makes it even more convenient. If this is a sign of times I can’t wait till they create a wireless charging sofa.
FurniQi uses wireless charging technology to charge your phone just by placing it on the charging spot (no wires necessary!). Wireless power transfers through electromagnetic induction, which means that with inductive charging, power reaches the device through electromagnetic fields instead of through a traditional cable. The FurniQi does have some assembly required however it’s very simple and shouldn’t take much time. Upon receiving the FurniQi side table there should be 1 tables top with wireless charging built in, 4 legs, 4 screws, 1 hex key, 1 USB cable, 4 cable management clips, 1 instruction manual and a partridge in a pear tree ….
The campaign on its first day has already raised $995.00 and its goal is to raise $50,000 in 35 days. The lowest contribution is the “Personal Paw Puck” that includes 1x WoodPuck; a Special Bamboo Edition wireless charger with your initials engraved on it. If you want to contribute and also get a FurniQi side table before everyone else the Early Panda FurniQi, starting at $119.00, includes a FurniQi side table with 1x charging spot plus guarantees it will be delivered before Christmas day. If you would like to find out more or contribute you can find their campaign here.
The FurniQi is changing the way we look at average household products or furniture and leaves me pondering what will be next? Below is the official press release of FurniQi and if you purchase one of the FurniQi side tables send me a selfie with it @nrpena or @hitechchic.

The FurniQi side table provides the perfect harmony of modern furniture design with powerful wireless technology to charge any smart device. Built using hand-harvested Mao Zhu Bamboo, its design is minimalistic, pleasant to touch, yet resilient, complimenting the decor of any home or office and withstanding the test of daily use.
“Marking our entry into the world of smart furniture, we have put a lot of thought into the FurniQi side table’s design and usability,” said Bavan Palasanthiran, founder of Fonesalesman. “The side table is incredibly easy to assemble taking a mere 60 seconds from opening up the box to having a complete table ready to charge your smart device. The side table provides wireless power in a natural and aesthetically appealing way, to make charging your smartphone more convenient than ever. Fonesalesman looks to pave the way towards a truly wireless future.”
The entire FurniQi range will be infused with Qi technology, an interface standard for wireless charging developed by the Wireless Power Consortium. Qi technology is supported by countless phone manufacturers including, Samsung, LG, Sony, Microsoft and many more.
Wireless charging is the most convenient way to power smart devices, leaving clutter and mess behind. The Qi technology enables users to quickly and easily drop their phone to charge, then simply pick it up and go. This effortless efficiency helps consumers to move one step further into a world free of wires.
With latest Samsung flagships, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, many current and upcoming Google Nexus and Microsoft Lumia devices supporting wireless charging out of the box, consumer awareness of this technology has doubled in the last 12 months. Now is the time that people want to know more about how easy it is to use and what they need to start charging their phone wirelessly at home and on the move.
