All you have to do is slip your phone into the special charging pocket inside the purse.  When you get home, simply drop the Everpurse on the white charging mat for wireless charging. A major game changer for those who are fed up with a surprise dead battery when they need their phone most – on the go.

Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut – and it may just change the way we see the world.

Through a partnership with Internet Explorer, the experiment began on September 3, 2012 when the band released the link with a preview of their single to one fan. The experiment ended on September 11, 2012 with millions of downloads tracked acloss the globe.
