The EyeStop concept is more than just a bus stop. The solar-powered panel has a touchscreen and gives passengers information such as schedules and routes.

But it doesn’t stop there! With the EyeStop, passengers will be able to surf the Internet, check weather conditions and it can even be used to post announcements and ads to other passengers.

Implications - Rising gas prices and the increased attention paid to the environment have caused more commuters to ditch their cars in favor of public transportation. Tech-savvy city designers are using this opportunity to devise intelligent Internet-enabled bus stops that will help commuters stay connected while waiting for their bus or subway.
