09.04.2012 Phone booths of the future appeared in Italy

The authorities of the Italian city Turin decided to convert traditional phone booths into modern communication points, reports Geo Meridian portal.

The first such booth, allowing not only to make calls, but also have Internet access as well as to recharge electric motorbikes and bicycles, has recently been installed near the local Politechnic Institute.

Besides a regular coin telephone with a touch screen, these telephone booths of the future will be outfitted with surveillance cameras and solar cells, which will produce the energy required for their operation.

The local authorities are going to install another 10 such booths in Turin by the end of this year. And eventually similar telephone booths may appear in Catania (Sicily).
