Microsoft partners with British designer to create wireless charging pants
Wireless charging for your smartphone is a more convenient way to add juice to the battery, but how awesome would it be for this to occur while the phone is in a pocket? Microsoft Mobile has teamed up with British designer A. Sauvage to come up with luxury pants (or trousers for us here in the UK) that also charge a compatible smartphone. The product is no mere concept – however – and will be available for pre-order on Amazon soon.
The pair of pants will go well with the Nokia Lumia 930, expected to launch in the UK later this year. How do the trousers work? Well, it's all black magic, ah who are we kidding? There appears to be a charging backplate that's situated just behind the special pouch in the main pocket, which itself needs to be topped up with juice before powering the phone. Essentially, think of the pocket containing a mobile charging plate.
It doesn't appear to be required to use the wireless charging plate, which makes it possible to simply wear the pants as you would normally and have the phone in the main pocket. It's an optional feature. Would you be willing to pick up a pair or two and add some style to your mobile wireless charging? Let us know in the comments.
