Everything you buy tends to be electronic based and of course this comes with a charger or power supply of some form. This wasn't really a problem a few years ago back but most people now have multiple devices that fit this category and as such have many chargers, I'd go as far as saying I have well over 30 different chargers in my room that are used most weeks! Unfortunately chargers are not only bulky and have a large length of cable but the real problem I find is that they are all very similar but not usually the same. This means it can take you a while to find the correct charger and untangle the mass of cables that inevitably get mixed up. For this reason I'd love a product that was able to charge all of my devices in one place, especially if it could be done wirelessly (as so to speak).
Powermat have as such built a device that could potentially solve this problem. It does after all seem a lot easier to walk into a room and place any device down on a mat and as you walk out to pick it back up and for it to be charged. However this to me does still feel and sound futuristic but maybe Powermat are ahead of their time.
