Local news in your centre

Boston is furthering its credentials as an eco and visitor friendly city with a city park bench that has the technology to provide  near-to real time information.
Innovation comes to town centre street furniture!! Boston is using a new concept to connect with its citizens and share near-to-real time information. A local company Visionect has partnered with Massachusetts-based Soofa to provide Boston with the latest sustainable, connected service for its citizens.
The Soofa bench and sign both use Visionect’s to provide live, local news. Both devices are solar-powered, and the bench provides two charging docks, with enough space for three people to sit. Both screens use 3G to receive information updates, are completely self-powered and quick and easy to install.
