This levitating charger makes charging your Apple Watch a thing to look forward to

One way to make charging your Apple Watch or Pebble something to actually look forward to is placing it in a super-cool levitating charging cradle. Levitating technological objects always appear super-futuristic for some reason, and seeing your Apple Watch or Pebble fly is now a legitimate possibility, thanks to Lift's Kickstarter efforts.

Lift is a smartwatch charger designed to levitate while charging the gadget wirelessly. And when it's not doing the charging thing, it turns into a pretty night lamp!

While the charger needs a wire-connected pad to fly over and pull electricity from, the contraption itself is fully wireless. Just wrap the watch around it and it will charge.

The whole system has a minimal and clean appearance, making it a natural fit with the rest of your Apple gear. In addition, the charging unit can function as a portable battery pack, giving the Apple Watch or Pebble two full charges on the go.

Scheduled for delivery in October, the gadget has a retail price set at $249. Backers can still score a discount if they pledge now.

it takes lots more effort just to charge :-/ and it takes time to balance that floating thingy (check unboxtherapy to see lou balancing floating speaker), and balancing this thing everyday will be frustrating lol...

Worthy how? Because it floats? What if he's right? Criticism is crucial.

Come on gotta admit this is totally fricken cool. Wonder if this thing works with other wireless charging watches. I'd buy an apple watch just so I can see this thing in action...I wouldn't actually use the watch though because it's only purpose for me would be to just sit on this cradle.

Since the Apple Watch already is most of the time connected to a charger it sure could benefit some by charging it with style :)

not an apple fan but this is pretty awsome , the levitation technology is for some decades now but some one thinked to turn it into a nice piece of tech for everyday use besides the trains not sure about the charging times but it probably worth it the extra time :D
