Power Generating iPad Rocking Chair, iRock

iRock developed by Micasa Lab - ZURICH is nothing less than a power generating rocking chair. As long as you rock you charge you iPad or your iPhone. The chair itself is inspired by traditional rocking chairs and it's designed  to resemble the classic, proven designed old rocking chairs.
It has been added to the design  a generator that transforms the movement into power. The iRock it's equipped with an iPad stand and a set of build in speakers in the back rest. The iRock is a product that explores how furniture can interact with technology and actually support the power for this technology. Movement is energy and to collect as much of this energy as possible is one of the future challenges. The laws of physics dictates how movement and friction constantly creates a vast amount of energy that in most cases are lost. iRock is an attempt to collect some of this energy and put it to real use. If you use iRock for 60 minutes you can recharge an iPad 3 to 35%.
