X10 Terrazzo Wireless Charging Pad

Since the beginning of the 21st century, China, as the largest manufacturer in the world, continues to occupy the top position in the global export of electronic products. However, what comes from China will eventually be back in China. About 20 million to 50 million tons of e-waste are generated annually, 70 percent of which are dumped in China. Among them, a large number of plastics which are difficult to degrade are treated by landfill and incineration, which aggravates "white pollution" that damages ecological environment and affects human and animal health.

Looking back at the abnormal cycle of this pillar industry in digital age, we focus on the material itself in the contest of social reality and commercial interests, and try to change the unsustainable material utilization and regeneration in this industrial chain with a familiar material. All that we can do is to try to develop the future technological prototype under the shackles of reality, leaving as much room as possible for the existing environment.

Terrazzo is a composite material using leftover stone as aggregate. After poured and cured with cement as coagulant, it is ground and polished smooth or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface. Terrazzo provides the solution for stone industry to recycle the leftover material. Relying on the low cost of manufacture and the large amount of traditional stone industries, terrazzo once achieved a rapid development and became a subdivision industry in China. The fine and beautiful patterns of terrazzo, one of the features of localization, has not only described the mediocre life took place in China before the 1980s, but also witnessed the development of China under the impact of economic globalization and development of science and technology in recent years.

X10 terrazzo wireless charger uses concrete mixed with recycled ceramic waste, demolition leftover concrete, quartz stone and other crushed stone aggregates as materials. With environmentally friendly materials from recycle process and nature environment, it tries to break through material limitations of the electronic products, especially the long-time relies on plastics and other chemical materials.

At present, the new wave of retro aesthetic style hits the modern decoration. X10 follows the traditional terrazzo production process, the whole terrazzo case with the smooth lines and delicate texture is made out of integrated mold. After hundreds of matching experiments, X10 redefines the modern terrazzo style by transforming the retro charm into young and bright colors, which also enables it to be a exquisite decoration in modern space when not being used for charging. The randomness of texture makes every X10 unique, and the natural beauty of quartz, marble and other stone aggregates also infuses the warmth and sensibility of nature into the rational, controlled digital age.

In daily use, X10 frees people from messy charging cables and improves the experience of electronic products; once expired, it’s convenient to recover the printed circuit board inside by crushing the terrazzo case. X10 minimizes the use of plastics in the main product, supporting accessories as well as the whole recycled paper packaging. Compared to the products with non-degradable chemical materials and the severely increasing energy crisis and environmental pollution triggered by them, X10 is harmless and pollution-free as concrete and stones can be weathered naturally in the environment. Come from nature, and will eventually return to nature.

What comes from nature and will finally return to nature. Natural materials that used to be unappreciated in the digital age will certainly renovate the material concept and application of environmental protection, energy saving and sustainable development in electronics industry even high-tech field.
