A Canada-based tech startup is unleashing a unique way to wirelessly charge mobile devices: by making them float in the air while filling up the battery.
The company, AR Designs, has developed a concept that fuses two capabilities of electromagnets (levitation and charging) into one futuristic tool that looks undeniably cool.
The OvRcharge is designed to juice up an iPhone or any android device while invisibly lifting them up through “magnetic levitation.” Once the battery is full, OvRcharge will still keep the phone levitating and rotating until removed.
According to the Kickstarter page, the technology is made possible by its magnet’s lifting forces that provide “an upward force sufficient to counteract gravity, and stability: ensuring that the system does not spontaneously slide or flip into a configuration where the lift is neutralized.”
With just a few weeks left in its Kickstarter campaign, OvRcharge already has raised over a third of its $40,000 goal with $23,594 funded by 73 backers. The campaign offers early bird deals that cost around $160 with a target delivery of December 2016.
