OvRCharge Levitates Your Phone While It Charges

OvRCharge Levitates Your Phone While It Charges

levitating-wireless-smartphone-charger

This thing is completely unnecessary, but damn if it ain’t cool. Sort of. It’s a charging base for your smartphone that simply levitates the phone while it charges it wirelessly. It uses a special case that contains a magnet and induction charging hardware. The case plugs into your phone’s charging port, and the magnet is strong enough to support the weight of the phone above the base, which itself is plugged into the grid. The phone will slowly rotate while it charges, and when you want to leave you just have to pluck it out of thin air and go. It’s useless in the sense that you’ll have to pay for something that doesn’t give you any added functionality, but if you want to impress your friends or loudly tell your visitors that you’re an early adopter that’s into tech, the OvRCharge is the way to go. How much will you pay? Right now, it’ll take an $180 pledge to reserve yours, and hope to get it by December 2016. It’s compatible with a bunch of phone models, so hit the link to find out which.

    Dang!! I was interested until I saw the price tag. I’d be willing to go as high as $50 maybe but $180 is a little ridiculous.
