Dupont brings wireless charging to its Corian countertops

Kitchen & Household
[MUSIC] Hey guys, this is Brian Bennett and we are a Neocon 2015 in Chicago. We're taking a first look at the brand new Dupont corian charging surface. If you're familiar with the Corian synthetic plastic form of surfaces for the home You will definitely know that it has been offered in lots of places, lots of colors, lots of styles. So whats different with Corian now is that it will have wireless charging technology built right into it. Basically you'll have the Powermat charging standard as well as support for the Qi wireless power charging standard built in. You'll have hardware and induction charging stations built into the countertop. And you'll be able to, say, set up your kitchen, or your bathroom, or even furniture with charging platforms and spaces built right into the surface. So, if you have Nexus 6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 that has both- PowerMat and Qi wireless charging support built into the phone. You'll be able to just drop it on the surface and pick up some electrons, right in through battery, without having to mess with any wires or anything like that. If you have an iPhone, say, that doesn't have any sort of wireless charging support built-in, you can get one of these Rings here. It's a power ring from Powermat which enables you to plug in to your phone via the lightning cable. Just plop it on to one of these little rings on the countertop and you're going to immediately start enjoying a flow of charge from the station directly into your battery. So you want to get your hands on the DuPont Corian Charging Surface, well that depends on who you are and what you plan to do with it. If you are an end user, and you want to, say, put this in your own home, you can go to Home Depot or a licensed Corian fabricator and basically get that custom ordered and built. To match your specifications. It'll cost about a couple hundred dollars per charging area on the counter top. So you can expect that kind of pricing. It's available right now as well.
