Hopefully a Strawberry Tree is coming your way.

The brainchild of a group of Serbian student-entrepreneurs known as Strawberry Energy, the Strawberry tree integrates solar panels at an optimum angle on its roof to provide electricity for a number of outlets accessible via a single pillar.

The pillar features built-in benches for lounging and chatting while waiting for your phone to power up.

The booth can power mobile phones, cameras and MP3 players. It does so even on overcast days and at night, thanks to its centralized battery system.

Strawberry Energy plans to build on this design by including Wi-Fi features, as well as by manufacturing portable versions of the Strawberry Tree that will be suitable for large public gatherings.
