19-01-2010 Our Savior, The Sun Station!

We’ve all been there – running frantically around from café to café trying to find a power point before the laptop dies. Never fear. Take a look outside, German innovator, Julene Aguirre-Bielschowsky has created our new best friend, the Sun Station. This extremely helpful and ecologically friendly innovation uses solar power to create energy, which in turn charges any electronic device. And the best part? It’s free for the public to use – so don’t need to buy that unwanted sandwich or coffee at the café just to use a power point! Soon, The Sun Station will be popping up in public areas – parks, train stations, bus stops and town centres, just to name a few. Your mobile and laptop will never die!

Made of concrete and teak wood, this ingenious piece of furniture is powered purely by solar energy, so use the Sun Station to charge your favourite technology the greener way.
