one of the clear trends coming out of this year’s CES is smart design. rather than introduce a slew of new flashy gadgets, companies are focusing on solving design issues that have been created by years of poor design. powermat is a revolutionary new design which aims to help frustrated users charge their army of battery powered devices. however instead of fumbling with power cords and adaptors, powermat charges your phone, mp3 player and other gadgets wirelessly. the system works with a non-conductive powermat which syncs with receivers attached to your devices. powermat eventually hopes that manufacturers will integrate wireless charging receivers into devices making syncing even easier. the mat will retail for around 100 USD and the receivers will be around 35 USD when the system is launched later this year. it will still be awhile until we truly know if this products helps ease the gadget charging dilemma.
