The Oasis Public Shelter Lets You Recharge You and Your iPod's Energy

Too many cities are not conducive to pedestrian traffic. Often you can walk miles without a place to sit or rest in sight. The Oasis public shelter looks to make urban areas more walker-friendly by creating aesthetically pleasing, hi-tech pit stops.

With the concept produced by Baita Design, the Oasis public shelter features a roof made up of solar panels that collects energy to allow you to plug in any electronic device for charging. As well, the panels power LED lights, which come on at night to add more visual appeal to the structure.

If there were nice, modern looking structures like the Oasis public shelter in every city, it would encourage more people get out of their cars and onto the street.
