The solar energy It is one of the most ecological sources of energy. We have seen solar gadgets of all kinds, cars, mobiles, houses …, but this new concept developed by the designer Matteo straforini is new because we had never seen a Information point powered by solar energy, in which you can get information about a city.
This information point is completely autonomous, so it can be installed in any part of the city where it receives sunlight.
It is an urban and ergonomic design to make requests in a simple way. The solar panels are installed in a kind of candle which is in the structure. It can be rotated following the sun until it rotates 180 °, just like a sunflower. A touch screen on the dashboard allows the user to access the menu, which contains the different navigation categories.
The unique shape of the information point and its amazing ability to follow the movement of the sun are additional benefits. First, its rotational capacity will increase the energy efficiency of photovoltaic panels as the sun’s rays are received throughout the day in the correct orientation. Second, the user’s touchscreen is always in the shade due to its unique shape.
