    Brilliant. Hope for humanity.

    Just so you know, there’s an error in the first sentence. “…student at Pulver” ought to read “…student at Pratt,” I think.

    FYI they use a high powered magnet not hooks.

    This probably needs to have some sort of integrated trash disposal area.

    I have seen hydrant tables for years in New Orleans, and the ones being used clearly look like they were “invented” decades ago.

    The thing I tend to notice at the mobile lunch carts is: huge amounts of trash in and around the cart, obviously left by previous patrons of said cart. Better that they have no place to eat so that they take their food and its detritus away with it.

    Reminds me of small paintings I’ve seen with screws spaced so as to allow them to be hung from those same kinds of street poles.

    It needs more prevention of it spinning off, perhaps two bolts to hold it up.
    Also, a lip to help prevent a bump on the pole or the tray causing complete culinary catastrophe would be good too.

      I’m pretty sure it does go into more than one hole; you can see a white vertical piece below the upper tray. Otherwise it wouldn’t be balancing like that, I think.

    He should’ve resolved his materials to something more practical than a slab of MDF before this really quite decent idea hit the blogosphere.

    Nice to see a little more liveability in the fabric of our lives. Now we just need to get the Architects on side and incorporate the idea into the design of buildings and outdoor structures

    Those would be awesome on the subway.
    I usually eat my breakfast on the subway, and while walking to the subway.

    Nice, but I see people leaving their trash behind. Maybe she can mount small trash cans as well.
