This is for all the tree huggers out there…


A tree in Brussels has been fitted with an on-board computer and a number of sensors including a fine dust metre, an ozone metre, a light metre a weather station and microphone – as well as a webcam, weather station and wi-fi centre. Bespoke software monitors the environment via these various sensors and outputs information in the form of videos on YouTube, sound recordings on Soundcloud, photographs on Flickr and data is translated into sentences which appear on the twitter feed and on a dedicated Facebook page – to give a tree-eye view of life in a busy city. All of these different feeds are brought together on talking-tree.com:
