In a growing trend of street lighting that is capable of generating its own power (see Folrida's , and Canada's attempts); Mauricio Clavero designed the 'Autonoma'. After looking at these different solutions, the Autonoma wins hands down in the department of elegance and beauty.

Implications - Technology that allows for intense customization is favored amongst consumers, and is finding its way to the most eccentric locations. What was once reserved for at-home use can be seen in public areas, as exemplified by the Autonoma street light. Ultimately, those involved in the technology industry should keep an eye on such innovations, which introduce the idea of customization on a level that is open to the public.
