Aiming to help users stay connected at all times, IKEA is to launch a wireless furniture collection with incorporated induction-charging stations. The new range consists of bedside tables, lamps and and desks, each item integrating subtle white charging pads. How does the system work exactly? According to the official press release, the wireless charging pads “use transmitter and receiver coils to generate a magnetic field which induces a voltage in the receiver coil. The voltage can then power a smartphone or recharge its battery simply by resting a phone on the Qi pad. Once placed on the pad, a notification pops up to alert the user the device is charging.”
Provides cost effectiveness: The traditional furniture are mostly made of wood while a variety of materials like steel, plywood, leather and plastics are used to make modern furniture. This variety of materials also provides variety in prices. Traditional wooden table will always cost you more than the modern table made of plastic. This brings the cost effectiveness into play while serving the same purpose.
