Smart street furniture to recharge smartphones and computers
Digital technology is becoming an increasingly important part of our lives and public spaces: almost everyone has a smartphone, and it’s now normal to see students and professionals working on their tablets or laptops on café terraces or even in public gardens. And we’re not even talking about Bluetooth headsets, connected watches, portable games consoles and other accessories that have become commonplace and encourage mobility.
Of course, these many connected tools need regular recharging, especially as applications tend to consume battery power quickly. A person with a phone and a laptop will therefore tend to recharge their devices several times during the day, and they need to be able to do this easily away from home.
This is why intelligent street furniture represents a major challenge. Who hasn’t found themselves running out of battery power in a public place, when the day is far from over?
Based on this observation and the growing demand in this field, Polymobyl has designed its very first connected urban equipment in the NUT line: USB terminals and a set of two USB ports that can be integrated into the furniture of your choice from our range, under a picnic table, for example.
