Empowering people with PowerMe

The future of outdoor public spaces is PowerMeOctober 2017

We have been busy working with Street Furniture Australia to design and develop PowerMe, a new charging table for public spaces. PowerMe provides a place to charge your mobile devices when you are out and about helping to empower users to never be without battery again. For more information on PowerMe visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3oUH0gBDUA

We are very excited that prototypes of PowerMe will be on display as part of Future Street, part of the Festival of Landscape Architecture on in Sydney from 12 – 14 October.

Future Street is being built by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), Internet of Things Alliance Australia (IOTAA) and Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand (SCCANZ) at Circular Quay on Alfred Street, in front of Customs House. So if you are in the city, take a look at what the future streetscapes of our cities might look like.
