The design studio Takieso Graft Design, based in New York City, has developed an elegant wool-covered mouse pad with a wireless smart phone charger integrated into the top. The device, called MousePad +, is now on Kickstarter for the initial price of $ 29, and for all accounts it looks pretty good.
The wireless charging pad, which is a Qi charger, is covered in brown, black or blue leather according to your choice, while the mouse pad uses wool fiber on a felt base. It can be plugged directly into your laptop or computer, and the company advertises it as portable, since you can fold it up and roll it up to fit it in an ordered rectangle slightly larger than a standard paperback.

Takieso is estimating a delivery date of August 2018, but as a Kickstarter project, be sure to take it with a grain of salt. The company is only asking $ 15,000, and is already one third of the way with 45 days ahead. Therefore, it is likely that the campaign will reach its goal unless it encounters unforeseen inconveniences.
That said, mouse pads are a kind of extinction, especially in the era of wireless, built-in wireless pads, as well as laser and optical mice that can track almost any surface. The wireless charging aspect is also a bit misleading, since you can simply plug your phone into your computer to get a faster charging rate. The device is also USB-A, which is a bit unexplainable in 2018. (The campaign offers a commitment level of $ 35 that includes a USB-C adapter, in case you have a newer laptop).
But if you, like me, enjoy the feeling and the aesthetic presence of a mouse pad on your desk, the MousePad + is a small and cool gadget that has some practical utility.
