IKEA: Furniture with built-in wireless charging
As we grow more and more dependent on smartphones and tablets, easy and convenient charging is becoming a universal issue. Wireless charging seems an obvious answer to that, and plenty of companies are already offering solutions.
Generally, the solutions still involve wireless charging stations that’ll take up space and need to be plugged in. But furniture-giant IKEA has introduced a different approach that could make for a more seamless integration of wireless charging in our living spaces.
While also offering more traditional charging pads, IKEA has introduced a range of side tables and lamps with built-in charging pads, allowing you to get wires completely out of the way. If you’re not a fan of IKEA design – and don’t have an issue with modifying your existing furniture – there’s even a wireless charger that can be built into your own table or dresser.
