Razer Base Station disassembly and Qi enhancement

Tell us the story of your project: 

First project of many where we make everyday things better and smarter.

In this case it is Razer Base Station Chroma where we disassembled it and enhanced with wireless charging capability. Interestingly, all over the inside of Base Station there are marking referencing project Lucy, which probably is code name for the product. Furthermore, design of enclosure and circuitry suggests that Razer intended "official" wireless charging for the stand. Maybe it will happen in next version.

NOTE: Warranty will be void if you disassemble your products

Teaser: 
Razer Base Station is nice headstand but it is missing some wireless charging. We did it.
Aha! moment: 
There is a space for actual wireless charging, perhaps next version might have it.
Uh-oh! moment: 
I fried one wireless charger while trying to power it directly instead of usb.
