Solar filling station

Here's an interesting design for a filling station.  Posted on, this solar panel filling station will be able to charge anything from your car to your MP3 player.  They already have a prototype in the works and it was said it could charge 8 cars in one go.

"Designed by Michael Scherer from Brixen, the E-Move Charging Station is equipped with eight mono-crystalline photovoltaic modules, which collectively supply 1.76KWp of solar power . With further refinements, the designers are hoping to generate about 2000KWh of electricity from the panels over the year."

The article doesn't mention how the power is transferred to the car, but I think it'd be cool if it did it through ambient radio wave power. It most likely doesn't though... article
