Phone Booths Turning Into Electric Car Chargers

Since ubiquitous mobile phones have rendered phone booths useful only as superhero changing rooms and world-record-attempt venues, the question becomes, what should be done with them. Telekom Austria has a good idea: turn them into electric-vehicle charging stations. Aside from the aesthetic facelift suggested by these two photos (one from an article on Physorg, one from Engadget - and hey, nice bikini ad, Engadget), it makes sense to reuse an existing obsolete infrastructure as an infrastructure required for a new and desirable technology. Well done, Austrians - now let's have everyone get in on that action!
