Apart from relaxation and possibility to rest, the specially equipped benches will let Prague citizens and visitors alike charge their phones or tablets, connect to the Internet, check the current temperature and air humidity or the volume of carbon dioxide in the air. All of that will be available at the city public areas without the need to be connected to an electric energy source - the benches are powered by solar panels.
As part of a six month pilot project, 8-10 benches will be installed in publicly accessible places in different locations across Prague. On the basis of the subsequent evaluation, Prague City Hall and its municipal districts will decide whether the benches will be installed in other parts of the city as well.
