Chinese live-streaming platform Bilibili’s uploader He Tongxue released a video featuring his self-made AirDesk on Monday. Up to now, the broadcast volume for the video on Bilibili’s platform alone has exceeded 4 million views, and the advertisement at the end of the video has sent Loctek shares soaring by 14%.
The video is titled “I made the product that Apple gave up…”. He Tongxue explained his reasoning behind making the gadget, “Four years ago, Apple released its own wireless charging board, AirPower, but until now, this product has not been released.” In a flash of ingenuity, He figured out a way to solve a problem he himself was having and thus created the ultimate version of AirPower – AirDesk.
In the video, He introduced the process of making the AirDesk. The desk not only supports wireless charging while also retracting its own legs, but the desk can also automatically find electronic products that need to be charged on the table. In addition, the desk can remind users to get some exercise and automatically hand cups of water to users.
After watching the video, netizens have expressed that they want one. Unfortunately, the table can’t be mass-produced for the time being. At the end of the video, He Tongxue said that the lifting table leg used in the video is the LIFT1 of Loctek, a mention that caused the company’s share price to soar by nearly 14% today.
