(Scroll down for video) Relaxing and rocking on this chair will no longer be seen as a thing for old or lazy people.
This iRock chair is a power generator rocker. The rocking motion will charge your iPhone or iPad.
The generator transforms the movement into energy. The iRock has an iPad stand and a set of speakers built into the backrest of the chair.
The iRock is a product that explores how furniture can interact with technology.
The laws of physics dictate how movement creates friction, and steadily, a large amount of energy in
most cases is lost.
IRock is an attempt to capture some of this energy and put it into actual use.
A generator on the chair transforms the energy into power. A 60-minute rocking session for instance, is enough to charge an iPad from 3 to 35 percent. You can also recharge any Apple device.
The iRock is handcrafted out of Swedish pine wood and will be available in five different colors, white, black, red, yellow and striped.
