iRock: The World’s First Power-Generating iPad Rocking Chair

This chair makes me want to sing “I wanna rock right now” really loudly (from Rob Base’s song “It Takes Two“) and I have the Zurich-based Micasa Lab to thank for that. They developed the iRock, a traditional looking rocking chair with the ability to charge your iPad (or iPhone) just by simply rocking back and forth.

The chair has a dock that your iPad sits in so you can conveniently control the music you’re rocking out to, along with built-in speakers.

The design, powered by a generator that converts the movement into power, makes it possible to listen and charge your Apple devices at the same time.
