What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Mobile is the innovative solution that simplifies your life in the home environment.

It's an innovative table, where you can charge all your electronic devices without needing any cable thanks to the wireless charging support located anywhere on its surface.   

The use of Mobile is very easy!

You only need to place your electronic device on top and it will get charged without cables.

Mobile is the first solution that combines daily use with wireless charging. It's a Multi wireless charging table that supports all 4 Qi standards up to 15w. 

This means that it is possible to charge many devices simultaneously!

Mobile can work in two different ways: 

• With type-c cable connected directly to DC adapter 5V.  

or 

• With 20.000mAh integrated power bank that allows you to move Mobile anywhere you want.

Models

  • type-c cable: X design technology Induction coil (allow to recharge up to 5 devices at the same time) DC Adapter Qualcoom 3.0 size: 40cm x 40 cm (hand made prototype) USB-C: 5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/2.5A, Total 50 W max input conversion rate: 85% automatic standby after full charge temperatures: 104*F/40*C Qi standard.

  • Powerbank model: X design technology Induction coil (allow to recharge up to 5 devices at the same time) DC Adapter Qualcoom 3.0 (to charge also the powerbank with type-c cable) size: 40cm x 40 cm (hand made prototype) capacity 26800mAH li-po conversion rate 70% automatic standby after full charge temperatures: 115*F/45*C Qi standard

Mobile is completely handmade in Italy with the finest wood and the best handmade Italian labour.

Today Mobile has two different designs*:

1. The triangle design

2. The desk design

Thanks to a special treatment, Mobile is completely water resistant and dust proof.

* Please do not pay too much attention to the Mobile's current designs. We have developed two shapes and designs starting from the classic rectangular bedside table, and trying to make it nicer with a triangular shape.

As written below, our goal, is to create a surface compatible with existing tables. To do this, we have chosen the Kickstarter fundraising platform to present a unique and innovative idea, creating a first version of Mobile, that would allow us to do all the appropriate tests and to deliver a physical product to our backers who will support the campaign.

We will then carry out a series of designs based on your opinions and your daily use, thanks to a survey we will send to the backers towards the end of the campaign.

Of course, If we'll reach the goal in 7 days we'll have time to add here on kickstarter one more design and have the possibility to expose Mobile in the most important design fair in the world based in Milan.

Mobile is universal and has no boundaries. 

It does not matter if you use an iPhone, Samsung, Huawei, Blackberry, Windows or Android or any other type of smartphone or electronic device: Mobile is for you! 

Do not worry if your device does not support wireless charging! We have thought of a simple and ergonomic solution...

We have developed a dongle that allows wireless charging to devices that do not support it 

It is very thin and has a flat cable that is connected to the lightning/microUSB/typeC port.

Product Standard: Qi Standard Certification: CE FCC ROSH In out: 5V Out put: 5V 700mA Charging Frequency: 110-205 KHz Charging distance: 4 ~ 8mm Net Weight: 7g Size: 76.8 x 46.6. It supports Micro Usb, Lightning (8Pin) and Type-c connector. 

Our goal is to bring the wireless charging in the homes of all of you. Starting from a small bedside table, coming up to the dining room table and then to the kitchen table, and… who knows what else?! 

We are also studying a dynamic solution that can be adapted to existing tables of commercial premises such as bars, fast food, or restaurants and that allows wireless charging during a lunch or dinner with friends.

That's why we need your support here on Kickstarter, to make Mobile the most functional and ubiquitous table in the world!

As for safety, there's really nothing to worry about.

Inductive charging is actually very safe to use. The electromagnetic field generated by the transmitters are very small and weak in power, only operating over short distances.

In some ways, wireless charging is actually safer than plugging in a device. Wireless charging transmits power without contact with exposed electrical connectors: Mobile reduces failure and possibility of electric shocks, and allows electrical devices to be charged without invasive procedures.

We have devised a new alternative charging method that allows to charge the device by placing it on any part of the table's surface. 

We called it X 

Thanks to this cross-shaped structure we can reach any part of the surface going and interpolate more X at the same time.

temperatures: 104*F/40*C


NOTHING IS LIKE MOBILE! 

Mobile combines technology with Italian handmade design.

We are two young guys from Milan, Ludovico and Francesco.

Francesco, passionate since he was young with technology, he pursued the interest of creating electronic products completely from scratch acquiring knowledge and contacts with the best suppliers during the most important technology fairs in the world (I have been at: Global Sources and HKDTC in HONG KONG 2016, 2017 and 2018, CES in Las Vegas 2017 and 2018, IFA in Berlin 2016, 2017 and 2018, and Messe in Hannover 2017).

Ludovico, after high school attended a bachelor degree in economics and management in Milan. During the bachelor he travelled to San Diego to attend a business english course and also to acquire work experience in the US. Then he studied six months in Bogotà, Colombia as an exchange student. His studies and work experiences allowed him to acquire the entrepreneurial vision, needed to start a new business.

And finally, today we are ready to launch MOBILE, which we sincerely hope it will strike your attention as much as the commitment we have put into creating it. 

All we need is you!

  • What really is wireless charging and how does it work? 

Inductive charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects through electromagnetic induction. Energy is sent through an inductive coupling to an electrical device. Induction chargers use an induction coil to create an alternating electromagnetic field from within a charging base, and a second induction coil in the portable device takes power from the electromagnetic field and converts it back into electric current to charge the battery." (source: Wikipedia)

  • What is Qi?

The Qi is a standard like Bluetooth, NFC, USB and Wifi. The idea behind Qi is simple: all devices with the Qi logo will be compatible with all Qi chargers. That’s it. No need for separate chargers or cables and no need for adapters when traveling. And because Qi is a global standard, your device can be charged wirelessly wherever you happen to be in the world.

  • Is wireless charging faster or slower than cabled charging?

Nowadays, most wireless charging solutions are just as, or even more efficient than wired charging. Inductive charging automatically stops when the device is fully charged, a technique that isn’t available in 99 percent of the currently available adapters. The latest Qi certified wireless chargers can deliver higher power levels (up to 15W) to compatible receivers, resulting into significantly faster charging times.

  • Can I charge multiple devices at the same time on one wireless charger?

Yes, Mobile has developed wireless chargers for both individual and shared use. Depending on the model, you can charge up to two phones at the same time.

Risks and challenges

It has been almost 6 months to get where we are today, and it has been an incredible challenge to design and develop the best performing table in such glamorous and Italian design.
We had to test all surface of the Table to give you the chance to preorder the first and best product in the market.
We also had time to start certification for sale all over the world.
We have found the best Italian carpentry manufacture.
We have partnered with a world-leading manufacturer of wireless accessories in China (6 years experience).

We spent a lot of time on launching a campaign and now we are ready.

We have all the partners lined up to produce and deliver.

All we need is your support to make MOBILE a reality! :)
