IRock: iPad-Charging Rocking Chair with Built-in Speakers


Just keep rocking and this chair will keep your iPad from going dark, no power outlet required. The iRock by Zurich-based Micasa Lab generates power from the rocking motions of the chair and even has built-in speakers, making it a self-sufficient iPad dock and sound station.

The iRock looks like an old-fashioned rocking chair, with one clear difference: the iPad dock that extends up beside the right arm, making it easily accessible to the lounger. The kinetic energy from the rocking motions is converted to electricity, with one hour of rocking charging the device up to 35%. A battery saves power for later usage.

Available in five colors, the iRock is made of oak and sells for $1300. It can also be used with iPhones and iPods, with an additional iPhone 5 adapter included.
