InducTable / inductive table

InducTable
InducTable

With induction energy can get inducted through a coil in a ferromagnetic object. So it is possible to heat up a cast iron plate or an induction pan, to keep a ferromagnetic bowl or plate warm or to supply a wireless lamp with current. Also special accumulators can be re-charged using this technology.InducTable consists of a framework of metal, which has a jacket of thermochromic vitroceramics. Through sensors InducTable recognizes where an object is which operates with it. The objects are regulated through touch screen remote control. The reflective heat becomes visible as the table surface begins to change colour.
