The Magic Bar is Not a Place for Washed Up Illusionists
April 12th, 2011
The Magic Bar might sound like a place where illusionists can gather and drink up whilst trying to pick up each other’s beautiful assistants, but it’s not. The Magic Bar is an accessory from a company called Mobee that is made to add inductive charging to your cool aluminum Apple peripherals.
The Magic Bar will work with the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and the Magic Trackpad. It replaces the normal AA batteries inside either device with some rechargeable batteries and a little cap that you screw on. That cap is the inductive charge connector.
When you need to charge the keyboard or trackpad up all you have to do is slip the keyboard into the Magic Bar and walk away. The device is made from aluminum and looks like it was made by Apple. It can also be recycled when you no longer need it. We don’t know pricing yet, but the Magic Bar will be available in late June, with pre-orders starting on May 15th.
