The Fountainhead / Wireless charger with time management

The Fountainhead
The Fountainhead

The Fountainhead is a wireless charging device that lets you put your phone down and focus on the current life.
The appearance of the elements of dry mountains and rivers in Zen means meditation and enlightenment. When you place your phone on the "fountainhead", it will automatically start calculating the time you are away from the phone and charging your phone. Every 30 minutes when the mobile phone is placed on the it, a circle of blue water lights up with a short sound of water droplets. Once you pick up your phone, the light will slowly dissipate.
