This is something pretty cool that’s appeared at CES, Powermats from Powermat.
There are 5 different mats available for charging iPods, iPhones, Blackberry’s, handheld consoles, laptops etc-all WITHOUT WIRES! That’s right, only the Powermat requires a wired power source -it then charges the devices placed upon it via magnetic induction:
The Powermats will also allow you to stream video from a mobile device to a tv. They should be available later this year but no word on price yet.
These look pretty cool to me and I think very useful. It will make charging devices literally as simple as putting them down…no more hunting for chargers or worse-broken chargers, no running out of sockets etc just nice, easy charging 🙂
