'Digital kiosk' integrates Qi wireless charging, NFC

Toshiba Electronics Europe has developed a "digital media kiosk" concept that integrates TransferJet functions, NFC procedures, and Qi wireless charging technology. The system can be used by clients to select any digital content through a dedicated store app, from e-books, music files, games, to HD video, and download it wirelessly to their mobile device after purchase. The company is planning to present the concept in February at Embedded World in Nuremberg.

The single formed plastic unit comprises an LCD screen with platter for smartphone charging or wireless connection, and status LEDs. To operate, the user taps a kiosk app icon on their smartphone and previews the available video content via the kiosk screen.

To buy the selected content, the customer presses the Purchase button and places the smartphone on the kiosk's platter. The NFC authentication and payment process will then initiate and, once complete, content will be downloaded via TransferJet to the phone with up to 560Mpbs (using the company's recently released uUSB TransferJet dongle). Users also have the option to recharge the phone handset wirelessly on the platter.
