Apple Patents Induction Charging With Orientation-Based Action Triggers

See on Scoop.itK-12 School Libraries

Apple has received a patent from the USPTO (via AppleInsider) for a method of wireless induction charging that can perform different actions based on the orientation of the device as it’s laid on the charing mat or pad.

Susan Grigsby‘s insight:

Heads up, library people! This could be the next thing on your equipment list to satisfy the BYOD schools to keep students charged up and ready to go. Very interesting concept – it’ll be interesting to see how long it takes for this to be a reality AND how much it will cost.
