Program Could Turn NYC Manhole Covers into Wireless Charging Stations for Cars

New York City’s manhole covers may soon star in a pilot program as wireless charging stations for electric cars and trucks.

According to Wired (via Gizmodo), you’ll be able to use an app to find an open spot, then park above one of the covers. The app’s integrated payment system will let you track and pay for the amount of energy you’re sucking up from the energy pad below.

The program will roll out in 2014.
