We are all about these....SOLAR BENCHES that let's you charge your smart phone or device. We need these at all our parks, especially along our waterfront here in Louisville!
CNET had this to say about a project that is adding them around Boston and Cambridge, Mass
"The Soofa is a solar-powered bench that can be used to charge small gadgets via USB. That's not the outdoor furniture's only trick. Each bench also acts as a data hub, collecting information on noise levels and air quality. That data will be accessible online, so you can check to see if it's sunny, cool, quiet, or loud at your favorite park bench location."
Call your Metro Council person and tell them to add these!
