Wildcharge – wireless charger


Coming to a nightstand near you in early July 07 the Wildcharge wireless charging pad will allow Wildcharge-enabled devices to get charged up just by resting on the pad. Devices will have to be fitted with a Wildcharge adapter and the pad itself must be plugged in (who said going wireless would be easy) but it still reduces wire-clutter significantly. This next small step in wireless power transmission should go for something under $100.

Sun Jar – rechargeable solar lamp

solarjar_1.jpg solarjarkid_1.jpg
The Sun Jar is a tasty mix of modern inside and retro farm-style outside. This lamp has been designed to collect and store sunshine for use at night. A highly efficient mono-crystalline solar panel collects energy from the sun’s rays, storing it during the day in a single rechargeable cell, to power the Sun Jar at night. The traditional Mason jar is waterproof and suitable for use outdoors, making a great alternative to candles or plug-in lights.

Each lamp contains a solar cell, a rechargeable battery and three low energy LED lamps.  Instead of a switch, the Sun jar contains a clever light sensor that automatically activates the lights when it gets dark or surrounding lights are turned out!

A perfect garden light or night light for your bedroom, bathroom or hallway.
