$1,300 iPad Rocking Chair Lets You Charge While Reading

Reading in a rocking chair is cozy, but it’s a drag when you have to get up to charge your iPad. Now you don’t have to worry about that. For $1,300 you can cozy up with your iPad and a good eBook and charge your phone as you rock, thanks to a new rocking chair from Swiss company, iRock.

The iPad Rocking Chair does not come with an iPad. But it does have a dock, speakers and a generator built-in so that you can have old-fashioned comfort with high tech features.

Check it out: “The iRock is a product that explores how furniture can interact with technology and actually support the power for this technology. Movement is energy and to collect as much of this energy as possible is one of our future challenges. The laws of physics dictates how movement and friction constantly creates a vast amount of energy that in most cases are lost. iRock is a attempt to collect some of this energy and put it to real use.” An hour of rocking equals about a third of an iPad charge.  (Via Time).
