Until inductive charging becomes widespread among manufacturers and consumers, we will remain attached to our walls when it comes time to recharge the batteries on our cell phones and other small electronic devices. In my home, with its poorly placed and too few outlets, that means phones sit on the floor while they fill up. It’s not that big a deal, of course, but it is kind of ugly. Plus, there’s always the chance the phone will be damaged by a playful five year old or the none-too-bright dog chasing him.
Fortunately, Jessica Jones from How About Orange has found a great solution to this common problem. The original idea comes from Sebastiano Ercoli and Alessandro Garlandini who provide a fun instructional video as well as a PDF of the template.
