A Fatboy Beanbag for Your Smartphone
Nokia partners with Fatboy to create a wireless docking cushion

After making a name for itself as the quintessential producer of beanbag furniture, the Fatboy brand has gone on to partner with Nokia in its newest venture. The two companies have created a wireless docking beanbag cushion for your smartphone. The cushion enables users to charge their phones by laying them down on the cushion, much like we recharge everyday. The pillow is designed for the new Nokia Lumia 920 Smartphone, yet is compatible with any phone that uses the Qi platform, making it both practical and easy to use.

In an effort to make the pillow more accessible to the public, Nokia has joined forces with the cafe chain Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, allowing each cafe to be stocked with seats for both caffeine hungry customers and their smartphones, respectively. However critics say the main appeal of the new cushion will be in the home, where television watchers will notice their phone is about to run out of battery and are can easily place the phone on its cushion instead of having to get up and charge it. That is to say, if your phone hasn’t been comfortably seated beside you already. [PocketLint]
