The city of New York and other similarly eco-minded metropolises can always ensure that people never have to worry about low phone batteries again thanks to the Street Charge stations. That is, of course, if they decide to adopt them permanently. Considering that the Street Charge stations essentially look like lamp posts, that shouldn't be a tough decision.
Designed by Pensa and Goal Zero in joint effort with AT&T, the Street Charge stations use solar power to juice up people's phones. According to Psfk, "The project has kicked into full gear after Superstom Sandy left many people without any resources to charge their phones."
Initially launched in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park, the Street Charge stations are expected to pop up at Coney Island, Riverside Park, Randall’s Island, Governor’s Island and Union Square Park.
