You’ll soon be able to charge your mobile device directly on various IKEA furniture, from nightstands and desks to even the base of a lamp.
This is a cool development, and proof that mobile is here to stay! If IKEA is going to be starting to include this technology in the near future, this should be an incentive for others to follow suit. I know that I’ll be in line to get some of these for around my house, once they are available!

For years they’ve been doing everything wordlessly. Why not wirelessly too? 😉
Good point! While they aren’t perfect by any means, I do think IKEA does have a better understanding of global content than most, but I’m sure they make mistakes along the way. Even so, I can’t wait to get one of these charging devices. We are a very digital family at my house, so it’ll come in handy!
