Pega  just unveiled a new WindUp Chair  at Milan Design Week  that charges your smartphone  as you sit! Simply wind up the oversized clockwork mechanism incorporated in the chair’s wooden backrest and plug in your phone – as the flywheel unwinds, it charges your device.
Taiwan-based Pega D&E  focuses on combining smart technologies with everyday objects. Their collection of interactive  works includes the ColorUp Lamp, which can can mimic the color of any physical object or surface, and the Happy Together Table, which combines sounds and music from multiple smart phones via a plug-and-play mechanism built into the tabletop. The Wind Up Chair was exhibited at the 2013 Milan Furniture Fair , along with Pega’s other objects.
