It can be slightly frustrating to run along with one's iPod only to discover there's only a few minutes left of battery life, but these convenient charging stations will hopefully solve a few issues.

Many companies are trying to add an air of convenience to consumers by placing charging stations in handy spots. Four artists in Germany created a giant rock installation that looks natural, but is actually a station to charge one's devices. The great part about this design is that it ironically gives a bit of a rural feel to an urban area. Various charging stations for cars are also popping up, with the hopes the tendency to buy an electric car will increase in the coming years. This would certainly help lower the emissions sent out into the environment.
