Power-Generating Rocking Chair To Charge Your Apple Devices
By John Yong, 02 Nov 2012
Zurich-based design company Miscasa Lab has developed a rocking chair that allows you to charge your Apple devices simply by ‘rocking’ the chair.
Called the ‘iRock’, the chair works by converting kinetic energy from the rocking motion into electricity via a built-in generator.
There is also a set of built-in speakers in the backrest if you ever want to relax and listen to music while you rock.
“The iRock is a product that explores how furniture can interact with technology and actually support the power for this technology,” said the company.
“Movement is energy and to collect as much of this energy as possible is one of our future challenges.”
The company also added that an hour of rocking can provide an iPad 3 with a 35% charge.
Handcrafted out of Swedish pine wood, the iRock chair is expected to retail at €1300.
