Your IKEA nightstand will soon wirelessly charge your phone


IKEA Qi wireless charging furniture featured

Wireless charging technology is one of those modern conveniences that, despite it’s convenience, hasn’t been widely adopted. Sure you can find it in a handful of Android devices, but that’s only one side of the equation. Thankfully, dorm room favorite IKEA is ready to take us into the future, with a new furniture line coming equipped with wireless charging.

Starting this April, you’ll be able to find floor lamps, tablet lamps, bedside tables, and desks with Qi wireless charging stations built right in. Some of the products are the brain child of industrial designer David Wahl. You’ll also find regular ‘ol Qi wireless chargers (in nice wood finishes) for anyone that doesn’t feel the need to go out and buy all new furniture. DIYers can also purchase inserts that require minor drilling to retrofit existing furniture.

Prices start at 40 euros and will be launching first in the US and Europe before a wider global rollout later on.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
