Solar flowers are set to bloom at Prudential Plaza

Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. said it has installed giant "solar flowers" in Boston's Prudential Plaza as part of an exhibit designed to promote the 2010 model of the Toyota Prius, the company's hybrid model.

The flower sculptures, which reach up to 18 feet high, "are partially powered by solar panels on the back of their petals and the base of their stems," Toyota said in a press release. "Each of the five Solar Flowers provides seating for up to 10 people, access to free WiFi service, and power to charge cell phones and laptops."

The bottom line is ...

Its not hard at all to charge your accessories with solar power

these wi-fi flowers would be a great idea for college campuses -- from a marketing and educational standpoint
