Wireless charger levitates your phone while powering it up
This week we focus on a kickstater campaign that i feel very passionate about. Its the ovrcharge wireless charger. Imagine a future where you will not need pesky cables to charge your phone. No more week charging ports that fail as soon as you poke them with a charger.
Well i know that this is not a new phenomenon as wireless chargers do exist and have been around for ages.Basically you place your phone on a pad that is connected to a charging port and your phone charges as it rests on this pad.Or as in the case of the Energous WattUp, which uses RF to charge your gadgets at a distance. But still, it is technically juicing them through the air.
The ovrcharge is a wireless charger that unlike most chargers it levitates your phone while it charges.The OvRcharge is a wireless Levitational Charger, that not only suspend the device in the mid air and holds its altitude, but also charge and rotate it as well.
Magnetic levitation or magnetic suspension is a method by which an object is suspended in the air with no support other than invisible magnetic fields. Magnetic force is used to counteract the effects of the gravitational acceleration and any other accelerations.
Energy is sent through waves and on other end an inductive coupling to electrical device, which can then use that energy to charge batteries or run the device.
The kick starter campaign has raised $17,881 Canadian dollars from 50 backers with 20 days to go as of 7/29/2016. Earliest shipments are expected by December 2016 and you can get yours by backing the project for $199 CAD or 15,350 K Sh.
