We love gadgets here at IGB Reviews and this Kickstarter project rocks. You have to watch the videos (link below), really it’s crazy. Forget those silly mats that you have to put your phone on for ‘wireless’ charging, this thing actually levitates and rotates your phone whilst charging it… in mid air!
It’s called the OvRchargeand uses a combination of wireless induction charging and magnetic levitation (yes, like a maglev train).
Here’s how it works, you stick this pad on the back of your phone (apparently most phones are supported but iPhones seem to appear a lot in the videos) or your iPad. It’ll keep track of how charged your phone is and stops charging once the battery is full – of course it keeps levitating and rotating, which is the cool bit to this.
It’s clearly causing a stir too – of the $40k CAD target it is already at $55,768 CAD with 3 days to go.
