Microsoft Designs Pants That Wirelessly Charge Mobile Devices
The technology company has developed a new way for people to juice up their phones while they are in their pockets.
Microsoft Mobile, the new name for Nokia after it was acquired by the technology company, has partnered with British menswear fashion designer Adrien Sauvage to create the world’s first wireless charging designer trousers.
The fashion designer crafted the trousers, which had a Nokia DC-50 wireless charging plate technology sewn into the pockets to enable the wearer to charge his phone via inductive charging while the phone is tucked safely inside the pocket. The Nokia DC-50 charging technology charges Nokia Lumia smartphones, and users can re-charge the charging plate via micro USB.
