Pretty soon you will be able to wirelessly charge your phone while eating a Big Mac, if tests go as hoped in Europe. Select McDonald’s locations in Europe are testing a Qi-based wireless charging system from PowerKiss. If you have a Qi-supported phone you will be able to put your device on a table and it will automatically start recharging as you eat lunch.
Smartphone and devices that are not Qi-supported can plug in a PowerKiss ring to recharge the device. The restaurants testing the PowerKiss recharging system will have the technology hidden inside tables.
It reminds me of those days when McDonalds offered free wi-fi to attract customers. This is just the latest version of the tactic. Hopefully customers will enjoy it.
