Tablet and smartphone owners looking for a new wireless charging dock, might find the ViVo worth more investigation, that has been designed by Joe Lara based in Los Angeles California.
The aluminium wireless charging dock has this week been launched over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website and is now available to pledge for with prices starting from just $35. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the ViVo dock and see it in action.
Lara explains a little more behind the inspiration for his ViVo wireless tablet docking station and explains how he came up with the design which uses a iPhone Qi approved receiver Coil.
“Sitting at home one day working on my computer, I over heard my wife and son arguing about who’s charging their phone first. My charger was available but I have an android phone which uses a different cable all together.
I thought to myself, why doesn’t someone invent a way to charge every iphone, ipad, android, windows, and smart watch device. At that moment I realized something “wireless charging is the answer”. I set out to design a sleek and minimalistic wireless dock. After several iterations and countless hours of research- ViVo was born!
Vivo starts out life as a raw piece of aerospace grade aluminum. We then transport our raw materials to our ISO9000 approved milling house where ViVo begins to take shape. ViVo aluminum is inspected for quality,cut to size, and prepped for CNC machining. Once started, ViVo takes up to 4 hrs of machining to reach perfection.”
The ViVo project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $40,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think ViVo is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help ViVo become a reality.
