Toyota Blooms Solar Powered Flowers
In their latest marketing campaign Toyota are bringing to major Cities around the USA, solar flowers. These 18-foot flowering stems are popping up around the country with the theme “Harmony Between Man, Nature and Machine” Promoting the Toyota Pirus which Toyota plans to launch in 2010
As for the flowers themselves and the solar aspect. The petals of the flowers are covered in photovoltaic solar panels which provided that free energy to drive Wi-Fi connections which are offered without cost to those that sit and ponder the advantages of solar energy. The units also act as rechargeable devices to top up that mobile phone or laptop.
While the Sculptures themselves are probably not more than a marketing and advertising promotion, the Ideas that they offer may be something we shall see in the future popping up around town and cities.
If you happen to be in New York, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco or Los Angeles then you may see the sculptures popping up near you.
