This is not a story about gadgetry (regardless of technical achievements), but rather an affirmation about how we live – that wherever light is supplied, power is often also required to charge our burgeoning electronic devices. W152 Busby is an electronic lamp that provides intelligent, universal power from three USB outlets, detecting charging requirements and managing them at their fastest rate, however many variable devices are plugged in. It provides up to 3 amps of power – enough to charge the latest generation of laptop computers. It can be supplied either as a freestanding or wall-mountable lamp, or built-in to a surface. s152 Busby illuminates and powers the office, the workshop, the library, the liing room and the bedside table.
