“As for Street Charge’s new look, which has evolved from a single curved solar panel to a helicopter-like segmented trio of panels, that was made in order to generate more solar surface area while blending in a bit better in parks.

“We wanted something that looked like it fit naturally in those natural environments. It’s a little bit organic, but it’s a little bit industrial. It kind of looks like a flower, but so little that it’s not kitschy. It’s more of an abstraction.”

Street Charge units will be on the ground for a run of 90 days in an exclusive deal with AT&T. But as they’re classified as temporary structures, and the promotion will come to an end, Street Charge could expand more permanently to other cities in the future. It’s not a bad idea, though I have one request: Fit a mini cell tower on this thing, and I’m sold.”
