Levitating (and rotating) Wireless Phone Charger.. Yes, you read that right

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!

Click here to see it on Kickstarter.

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.

Go check it out on kickstarter!

BEZALEL Empowers iPhone Users with Universal Wireless Charging

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — After a very successful Kickstarter campaign and debut at CES, BEZALEL’s first-of-its-kind universal charging solution for the iPhone is now available via Amazon and the Bezalel.co website.

The Latitude dual-mode (Qi and PMA) case enables iPhone users to power up using any wireless charger – regardless of charging standard.

“The iPhone is packed with great features, but wireless charging isn’t one of them,” said BEZALEL CEO and Co-Founder Frank Wu. “Our first-of-its-kind Latitude case lets iPhone users power up using any wireless charger, without having to pick sides in the war over competing charging standards.”

Wu went on to explain that the war between Qi and PMA is similar to iconic battles such as VHS vs. Betamax and Blu-ray vs. HD-DVD, except that wireless charging impacts far more consumers given the proliferation and daily use of smartphones. Companies backing the Qi standard include McDonald’s, Samsung, Toyota/Lexus and IKEA. Those backing the PMA standard include Starbucks, Delta Airlines, Google and AT&T.

“Wireless charging is all about convenience, and there’s nothing convenient about being unable to power up because your mobile device is incompatible with the nearest wireless charger,” he added. “While the standards war won’t be resolved anytime soon, we’ve found a way to settle it now for iPhone users. BEZALEL is like Switzerland in the battle between Qi and PMA.”

The Latitude case is available in black or white for iPhone 6/6s ($49.90) and 6 Plus/6s Plus ($59.90). It is constructed of advanced polycarbonate, and includes a flexible, super-durable Lightning cable connector that lets users charge and synch their iPhone easily the old-fashioned way (via a standard Lightning cable).

“There’s irony inherent in the fact that most people power up their ‘wireless’ devices via a power cord,” said Wu. “At BEZALEL we’re determined to change that.”
