Tunto LED 8 PowerKiss Desk Lamp Can Wirelessly Charge Your Gadgets

Who would have thought that an ultra-cool LED lamp that features a wireless inductive charging surface mashed into one uber modern piece of technological lightpiece would cost upwards of $1400? The Tunto LED 8 PowerKiss table lamp is far from my budget for a desk lamp, but the things that I would do to own one... Its got an array of 9 bright LED lights for a total brightness output of 870 lumens hidden inside an ultra-thin piece of brilliantly finished wood of your choosing that is bent into its minimalist and Finnish designed shape. What's more is that the Tunto LED 8 PowerKiss lamp features touch-sensitive buttons for adjusting the light intensity and of course power on/off. What you won't be getting are ambient light sensors that will automatically adjust the light for you.

The lamp was designed by an award-winning design brand called Tunto with help of wireless charging technology made by PowerKiss. If your device doesn't support wireless charging, you've got to plug in a PowerKiss Ring adapter which will then let you wirelessly charge your device when set on top of the lamp's wooden base. PowerKiss' wireless technology does support the Qi standard, but the company doesn't offer any Apple Lightning adapters yet as one could also tell by the iPhone 4S being charged in the photo above. It's a beautiful piece nonetheless. And if you could live without the wireless charging feature, you'll be saving a whole lot of cash going with one of Tunto's smaller LED1 models that start at $660, and are also offered in multiple vibrant colors.

Mobee Debuts Magic Feet & Power Bar, Magical Wireless Charging Orgy

CES 2012 is fast approaching and companies are eager to show us what they've got in store. Mobee has announced its latest Mac peripheral accessories today including the Magic Feet and Power Bar. Both of which are means of conveniently keeping your Apple Wireless Keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad all charged up without wasting batteries and time. The Magic Feet is Mobee's Magic Bar and Magic Charger all fit into one big inductive charging station made out of white plastic and aluminum that can wirelessly recharge your Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Mouse at once, or both the Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse using inductive rechargeable cylinder battery and a rechargeable battery pack.

The Magic Feet can charge up to three devices simultaneously, but you're out of luck if you want to charge both Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad at the same time. It takes 6 hours to fully charge a device which will then last for 10 days on a single charge. The Magic Feet will start shipping early March for $149.90.

Mobee's second charging accessory is a lot more affordable and called the Power Bar. Instead of going with wireless induction charging, the Power Bar replaces the Magic Trackpad's double AA batteries with its own screw-in, rechargeable battery cylinder that can be recharged using a micro-USB cable taking up virtually no space unlike its siblings. The Power Bar is also expected to be available in early March for $29.90. Both are now available to pre-order.
