McDonald’s is to adopt the Qi wireless charging technology which attaches a ring to the users device and when placed on the table where the Powerkiss pad is embedded customers will be able to charge their mobile device while enjoying their cheeseburger. At first the technology will be available in Europe only.
Since it is not possible to create a ring for every mobile device, the company has build power rings for micro USB and Nokia devices.
It is not the first time that wireless technology is making its way to the public as Coffee Bean and Nokia in the US have provided already provided wireless charging.
However Powerkiss’ tech does not require a mobile device that is capable of wireless charging, which makes the technology more accessible to people.
