GE Debuts WattStation Electric Car Charging Station
By Jim Motovalli
Yves Béhar, the Swiss-born designer who founded the San Francisco-based fuseproject, may be best known for his work on the $100 “XO” laptop computer, but that may change with the General Electric WattStation 220-volt public electric car charger.
“In scale it’s much closer to a parking meter than a gas pump,” said Mr. Béhar, who designed the WattStation, in an interview before the product’s introduction in San Francisco on Tuesday. “It’s not very high — you approach it much like you would a bank teller machine — and the display is angled toward your eyes. It is very much speaking to you directly, and it’s a soft-looking shape with no angular elements.”
