Chances are you don’t have a spare $1,300 sitting around to spend on something completely unnecessary. Most of us don’t. But if you did, wouldn’t you love to drop it on this incredible iPad Rocking Chair?

At first glance it seems as though the chair merely holds your iPad in place so you can go hands-free when you want to. But this chair does a whole lot more. It’s got a built-in generator that transforms each rocking movement into power that charges up the device. Just 60 minutes of rocking can charge the iPad device up to 35%. Its creators, from the Micasa Lab, aimed to explore how furniture can interact with (and actually support) technology.

Currently, the chair is available in white, but will soon be available in a rainbow of colour options.
