WACH is an innovative pager system which, besides serving as a normal guest pager, will also charge your mobile device.
Don’t worry about draining your smartphone or tablet’s battery while waiting for a nice meal at your favorite restaurant! WACH will charge your device and serve as a restaurant pager at the same time. You can even take it to your table with you to fully charge your device as you eat.
The idea was born in a Master’s level innovation class, when we were requested to think about a pain frequently experienced by people. Through a rigorous design process, we chose to work on a product that will address a problem we had heard many of our friends complaining about. “My cell phone ran low on battery life. I went to a restaurant, but was afraid to use my phone while waiting for my table because my battery was low. Then, when I got a table, there were no available electrical outlets to charge my phone.” So we came up with this amazing idea.
- Popular restaurants where costumers frequently need to wait to be seated or be served
- Anyone concerned about their battery’s charge while dining
- Anywhere traditional paging units are used including waiting rooms, casinos, hotels, and more!
