They can foul up the beauty of a city or location where they are placed. A company called Urban Electric has a very cool EV charger that pops up when needed and hides away when not called the UEone.

Mu One: the only international, multi-device charger you need

Anker PowerWave 7.5 ride the wireless charging wave

Although long available in some phones, it hasn’t truly become a universal feature. With Apple’s adoption, however, it is expected to become so. The influx of new smartphones at MWC 2018, some of which do support wireless charging, is perhaps indicative of that trend. As one of the more popular manufacturers of third-party power solutions, Anker is in a position to capitalize on that wave. Which is why it has timed its announcement of its PowerWave wireless charging system just right, to give buyers of these new smartphones a wireless option for juicing up their new darlings.

Caviar iPhone X Tesla sacrifices beauty for solar charging

Caviar iPhone X Tesla sacrifices beauty for solar charging

Pi wireless charger doesn’t need to touch your phone

Pi wireless charger doesn’t need to touch your phone

Like with almost anything, Apple’s adoption of an existing technology is a sure way to boost said technology (and rewrite history in the process). This year, it’s wireless charging, thanks to the iPhone X. But while wireless charging promises the convenience of having no wires, it doesn’t exactly deliver complete freedom. You still have to put your phone on top of a flat surface. That’s where the Pi comes in. Billing itself as the world’s first truly wireless and contactless charger, it doesn’t require users to place their devices on it. In fact, given it’s conical shape, you really can’t anyway.

Amazon robot plan almost too good to be true

This robot - or army of robots - would address a problem that many citizens have at airports every single day of the year. It'd do a lot more good than those confounded outlet stickers, anyway.
