Spotted an attractive life size replica of a Palm with glowing green LEDs at Jumeriah beach. On closer look, it was an aesthetically designed installation with solar panels disguised as leaves of a palm. In addition to lighting, this palm is also a wifi hotspot, mobile charging station, sports a selfie cam and can seat around 5 people with its circular base. 

Aptly named Solar Palm. The next generation of solar powered street lamps has arrived. Solar Palm is a right sized combo of utility and aesthetics. Hope Dubai will have more of them soon.
