    Pi charging device can charge your phone from a distance
    Wireless charging still requires you have a compatible pad, but the new Pi charging device aims to make wireless charging as simple as setting your device near a base station.

    To bad that it appears you have to use the special case to use this. Personally I like cases but so far what their design team has come up with doesn't move me. Some colors would be nice or maybe different materials...

    I reserved one anyway. Maybe some spray paint can jazz it up?

    "The Pi case enables your existing devices to join the revolution. It squeezes a resonant receiver into a gorgeous and protective case."

    Possibly it's using beamed microwave power. Just don't put your eyes or other RF sensitive body parts in the way. I suspect the FDA, FCC, and similar may want to look at it

    Qí (气 meaning air) makes sense, but Pi (屁 fart)?
