Like Ice Hockey and Android? Combine the Two with a Qi Charger Hockey Puck

Like Ice Hockey and Android? Combine the Two with a Qi Charger Hockey Puck

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.
