GloPower / Renewable Energy Bench


GloPower is a renewable energy bench that is operated with its self-collected energy. This concept and design is inspired by a plant called morning glory, which shows a different characteristic between day and night. Just like morning glory, GloPower provides a number of different functions depending on the time/season, and does not require any other additional energy supply other than its self-converted energy. Its unique design and mechanism can give convenience to public, and make a more eco-friendly and sustainable city.
