The Winter Olympics in Sochi are over, and Canada once again beat the United States at ice hockey. Emotions were high, and more people around the world had a chance to see how great ice hockey can be. Here at XDA Portal, we usually talk about development, applications, and other tech-related stuff, but this time we’re going slightly off-topic.
If you ever wondered what else can be done with a hockey puck in addition to hitting it with a stick, you might be surprised. XDA Senior Member BigCrisco39 used his manual skills to combine a wireless Qi charger and a hockey puck and create rather unusual device.
After the modification, a standard hockey puck becomes a Qi wireless charger that can be used to charge the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), and other compatible devices. That’s a proper hockey power! The process hasn’t been shared, but the results can be seen in the thread. The idea of creating such a device is amazing and shows how creatively two passions can be combined together.
If you want to take a look and ask the author to share the creation process, you should visit the original thread._________
