IKEA’s Wireless Charging

With so many of our devices requiring daily charging, open outlets are becoming as rare as Polaroid film. Ikea is setting out to liberate us from our outlet obsession—while reducing powercord clutter—by embedding inductive charging into everyday furniture. The Swedish home design behemoth will soon offer lamps, tables and desks that have a small platform where users can wirelessly charge any of their devices that support the technology. The new collection will go on sale this April.
