#iPhone8 #GalaxyS8 – iPhone 8, Galaxy S8 May Float While Charging [REPORT] : The iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 might come with chargers that will enable them to defy gravity while charging and float in midair. This will be made possible by a new Kickstarter project for the OvRcharge charger, a very intriguing prospect, though somewhat gimmicky.
How the OvRcharge works
At first glance, the OvRcharge seems like a stand fsmamade out of a solid block of wood, but in reality, it is an advanced charging station. It is accompanied by a phone case enabling users to place their phones into a suspended position a few inches above the station. This causes the device to enter a controlled spin that helps heighten the “Jedi powers” effect.
The phone remains suspended because of “magnetic levitation,” while for charging without the need of physical contact, OvRcharge uses induction charging.
The OvRcharge project has a Kickstarter goal of C$40,000, and currently, it is within C$1,000 of that goal with 13 days still remaining, thus, full funding seems likely. The OvRcharge kit costs $239, and it bundles into one charge case.
The charger is compatible with a huge range of devices that includes not just iPhones such as the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and newer but also the latest handsets from manufacturers such as Samsung, Huawei, Sony and LG as well.
The OvRcharge could be the future of smartphone charging, and who knows? We may have our Galaxy S8 or iPhone 8 floating above our bedside tables while charging.
