Kick back in your rocking chair. Relax. Knit some booties for your basset hound. Blast some AC/DC through built-in speakers and recharge your iPad at the same time. You have an iRock, an iPhone and iPad-charging rocking chair.
Though it's still listed as being under development, a lot of details are already available for the iRock. It comes in five colors ranging from white to bright red. It is made from Swedish pine. It has a very classic shape. There's no attempt at making the rocking chair look like it was built by Apple's design team. That's pretty refreshing.
The iRock includes a generator that turns rocking movements into power for your iPad or other Apple mobile product. Just set your device in the built-in dock and rock your low battery away. According to the iRock's creators, Micasa Lab, a 60-minute rocking time translates into recharging an iPad 3 up to 35 percent.
The iRock is expected to cost about $1,700. Android fans will be out of luck. The product page says no Android connectors are available at the moment. Perhaps Android lovers could come up with their own Android-charging La-Z-Boy recliner.
