Wouldn’t it be cool if your phone juiced up every time you placed it in your pocket?
Well thanks to a fashion designer and the Nokia DC-50 wireless charging plate for Lumia phones, you can now make this a reality.
A. Sauvage worked with Nokia to create the “smart trousers” as part of his Modern Man collection. The slick and stylish pants will charge your Lumia (or any phone retrofitted to work with the charging plate, in theory) when you place it in the specified pocket, wirelessly.
The cool thing is that these pants aren’t just a concept: you’ll actually be able to pre-order them on Amazon.com very soon.
Marketing Director for Microsoft Mobile in the UK and Ireland had this to say about the pants and Sauvage:
“We have a proud history of working within fashion, having previously collaborated with Bruce Weber and David Bailey, as well as recent partnerships at New York and London Fashion Week…Continuing this theme, we are excited to work alongside a talented designer such as A. Sauvage. As well as having the vision to co-create these amazing wireless charging trousers, his style complements the cutting-edge design of the new Lumia 930 smartphone perfectly.”
Will you be picking up a pair of these “smart trousers”? Or you happy to use a wall socket to charge your phone?
