Smart benches unveiled in London

UNITED KINGDOM

New solar powered benches that can recharge mobiles, tablets and portable music players have been unveiled in several locations in London’s financial hub, Canary Wharf. The four benches can also track air quality and noise levels and include an emergency call button. More sensors are expected to be added with each bench able to be custom built according to each buyer’s demands. Each bench can charge up to six devices via two built in cables, two USB ports, and two wireless chargers. Although not cheap, at £5,900 each, the benches have received awards including winning the ‘Connecting people and creating communities’ competition, organised by the Institute for Sustainability in partnership with the Mayor of London’s Office and supported by EIT Digital.
