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. Continue Reading →
