Self-sustainable art project gives people a place to charge their phones.

In an effort to reinvigorate some public space in the German city of Dortmund, four artists have come with a completely self-sustainable sculpture that offers people a place to relax and charge their electrical devices. It looks just like a rock, and apart from being a unique place to hang out, the hope is that it will spark more conversations about renewable energy across the country.

The sculpture is called “Stein mit Vollausstattung,” which translates as “rock with full equipment.” As pointed out by FastCoExist‘s Sydney Brownstone, it's also a word used to describe all the features of a new car – which pokes fun at all the additional features present in this particular lump of concrete.
