You may have read about wireless chargers recently in the Economist, the Independent, and elsewhere. This past week I got to see how these compact instruments, soon to be standard on our electronic equipment, might integrate with our desks, tables, or any flat surface. Those of us who visited the showrooms of KI and Teknion at NeoCon, the trade show for contract and commercial furnishings held at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart every June, saw the future. Instead of sophisticated wire-management systems, common to all office furniture today, small chargers will be attached under desktops, coupling with chargers on our communication units. I have great expectations of this new phase in efficient power delivery, not to mention new mobility in the workplace. I, for one, am ready to detach and detangle.
Hopefully very very soon.
