Totem Power, a company intent on pushing the boundaries of technological innovation, think they have the answer to the future of smart cities.

Very clever solution because these platforms are revolutionary in their ability to "provide critical energy and communications services in the face of large-scale disruptions to both the electric grid and communication networks".

This is what smart cities are all about! 

“Totem is one of the first to unite design, infrastructure, and community in a single as well as exquisite platform .....It’s hard to imagine a major project or public space that it would not transform.” The first Totem model is slated for release in 2017.
