Belgian Girl Geeks

Your old phone charger became a hanging chair!

Saturday, June 20, 2015 0 , Permalink 0

A while ago one of our Girl Geeks, Evy Puelinckx from Het Vindingrijk, was looking for old phone chargers for a secret upcycling project, and a lot of girl geeks donated their old chargers for which Evy would like to thank you!

She received a very cool assignment from Samsung: design a unique chair out of old phone charging cables to show that all those phone charging cables
won’t be necessary anymore in the future. How come? Well, the newest Samsung devices, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge can be charged wireless!

But the best is yet to come! This weekend you can win one of those unique hanging chairs. Good luck ;-)

With the Gear VR you are in a kind of virtual reality. Perfect to give a real view of a particular environment where you can experience it like it is reality. You just have to click your smartphone in the 3D glasses.

A fridge with double compartments. One in the front for the stuff you need every day and a second behind it for the the stuff you less often use.

5. Smart Home
With the Smart Home package of Samsung you can have the same functionalities as a domotica system, but a lot cheaper! Starting from €200 for a basic package.

You can even open the door when you are e.g. watching TV just by using your Samsung app and the Smart Home hubs. You don’t need a key anymore!

This will be available from quarter 4 of 2015 or quarter 1 of 2016 on the Belgian market.

There are a lot of Samsung Galaxy S6 gadgets like a wireless charger. From now on you can charge your Samsung mobile just by putting the device on the spot. Or the battery chargers on-the-go when there is no electricity.
