The Solar Charging Point

There is a new invention that going to make some big bucks. Point.One S, as it is called, has been installed at BMW Welt in Munich as a showcase for what might be possible in future. This hyper-modern canopy is gently curved in the style of a bird’s wing, and features an array of solar panels on its roof that not only charge the car, but will feed power back into the national grid when there’s no vehicle present. 

While we’re obviously a long way off from seeing this kind of structure built on regular street corners around the world, it’s yet another example of how great aesthetic styling can work hand-in-hand with progressive, eco-friendly technology for a better – and better looking – future.
