Gigantic showy flowers are being placed at different cities in United States by Toyota as a part of the marketing campaign of its 2010 Toyota Prius. These temporary installations which emphasize the message “Harmony Between Man, Nature and Machine” were placed in Boston’s Prudential Plaza and will be seen in cities like New York, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Each of the 18 feet tall flowers not only have a seating facility for 10 people but it also helps in recharging laptops, cellphones and gadgets by the stored energy accumulated with the solar panels on its petals and the base. Functioning from eight in the morning till nine in the evening they also provide free wireless internet service. Well…can there be a better way to make us understand and enjoy “Harmony Between Man, Nature and Machine“? We think not!
