Japanese consumer electronics giant Panasonic plans to introduce this one of a kind Solar-powered wireless charging table to the Japanese market by the end of this year. It features a large solar panel embedded into the tables’ surface and is said to charge any Qi-compliant device just by placing it on the table.
Seems pretty nifty ! No word on pricing and world wide availability just yet, but it does sound like a pretty costly affair. Wireless charging is nothing new though, Energizer offers its range of wireless chargers called the Energizer “Inductive Charger” for around $90 and are compatible with the Apple iPhone, Blackberry as well as the Nintendo Wii console remotes.
