New Ikea Furniture collection will use wireless technology to charges your devices

Photo credit: Ikea Currently in Barcelona, Spain the WPC is happening (Wireless Power Consortium) and of course like all major technology conferences or events some pretty exciting new things are coming out of it. Swedish furniture maker Ikea is teaming up with Samsung to launch a new collection of furniture that will charge your devices, no wires needed! The collection, which is set to launch in North America and Europe in April 2015, will include nightstands (beside tables), lamps, and desks that have wireless charging pads in them. We are very much a mobile device society now, there are apps for everything, so that is pretty draining on the battery. So to be able to just sit my phone down and know it's charging is nice and for the OCD crowd that cringe at the sight of cords and cables this makes it look cleaner. Nothing worse than needing to charge your phone and can't find an outlet or needing to borrow someone's charger this move to wireless charging needs to become a standard across the board. With all the fancy new tech involved, will the furniture be any easier to assemble? This partnership makes sense, seeing as the Samsung's new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge features embedded wireless charging technology. Stay close for my post about all the new features of the new Galaxy devices from Samsung. ~ChicDivaGeek
