Wireless charger meets luxury desk

These days it seems like you have chargers for just about everything, your mp3 player, your phone, PDA, and plenty of other devices that you have to keep track of. Herman Miller Inc. is working to eliminate that hassle. They have designed a desk with a system called eCoupled  from Fulton Innovation that can charge almost any portable device just by setting them on the desk.

The eCoupled system works by transferring power via a magnetic field. Therefor, once a device comes in contact with the field, it can begin charging. I know that it would be much easier for me to just set my phone on my desk, or depending on the size of the magnetic field, leave it in my holster and have it charge. There is currently no word on pricing or availability.
