Tired of your furniture not pulling its weight? Just sitting there looking pretty? Turns out IKEA agrees and their new line of furniture is sure to set a new, high bar for the industry. Releasing this spring in both the States and Europe, the Swedish brand is out with their new Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) supported range of products, which they have built with Qi wireless device chargers. The products include a line of lamps and other small pieces of furniture like coffee tables and bedsides tables as well as a small IKEA-designed pad that adds Qi charging to any surface just in case you’re not in the market for a full redesign. The positives are pretty clear here, including sparking further development and integration of the technology, but, as usual, negatives still abound with no universal standard integrated into smartphones given WPC’s rivals at Power Matter Alliance. Bad battery puns aside, the new IKEA range is worth a look after the jump.
