Solar Power Flowers

Solar Power Flowers

Giant “solar flowers” have been installed by Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A Inc., as a part of their exhibit promoting the new hybrid model to be put out by the company.

At a press release, Toyota described the 18 foot high flowers a being “partially powered by solar panels on the back of their petals and the base of their stems. Each of the five Solar Flowers provides seating for up to 10 people, access to free WiFi service, and power to charge cell phones and laptops.”

This is all part of a marketing strategy geared toward emphasizing “the balance the Prius helps strike between the needs of man and nature.” Hence the name of the exhibit, “Harmony Between Man, Nature and Machine.”

Residents of Boston will also find bus shelters in their city, that are ventilated with the help of the  solar power…
