The youcreatives website has this piece on the iRock: an iPad Rocking Chair. The chair comes equipped with a pair of 25-watt speakers built into the back of the chair and a built-in generator that will charge your device to 35% after one hour of rocking.

"The iRock is a product that explores how furniture can interact with technology and actually support the power for this technology. Movement is energy and to collect as much of this energy as possible is one of our future challenges. The laws of physics dictate how movement and friction constantly creates a vast amount of energy that in most cases is lost. iRock is a attempt to collect some of this energy and put it to real use. If you use iRock for 60 minutes you can recharge an iPad 3 to 35%."
