What a random, cool idea.
A 100 year old tree, living on the edge of Brussels, was hooked up to a fine dust meter, ozone meter, light meter, weatherstation, webcam and microphone. This equipment constantly measures the tree’s living circumstances. And translates this information into human language. Then, the tree lets the world know how he feels. Follow the life of the talking tree via YouTube, Flickr and Soundcloud. And friend him on Facebook.
I just started listening to this, and it’s real good.

Music cultivated from memory cards of old cellphones in West Africa, mostly used for ringtones. They’re actual songs, not blippy chip music, and the complete mix is a good trip.
Elite is in the process of releasing an app called “ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection (Vol. #1),” which lets you play 25-year-old arcade classics like Paperboy, 1942, Airwolf, Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins, Kokotoni Wilf, and Turbo Esprit on your iPhone (and iPad).
Moleskine iCovers wrap your iPad or iPhone with the quality we all know and love. Not to stray from their analog history, the case also includes a nice notebook as well.
Japanese company Abee has just released a couple great iPhone 4 cases. Type 01 (above) is a 100% aluminium case measuring in at just 3mm. The part that we like most is the bolt construction. For those who like flare, The Type 01 comes in 6 colors, black, purple, gold, silver, blue and red.
The Aiptek 3D-HD 3D Camcorder is getting some decent reviews even though it’s the first-gen item of its kind. Think about it- for a price similar to the newest flip cams you get the ability to shoot actual 3D video and still photos… and review them through a small built-in 3D parallax display (which means you don’t have to use special glasses). Outputs to 2D for regular viewing and 3D formats for viewing on larger screens that have the capability, and they’re even readying an 8-inch diagonal 3D photo/video viewing frame. Worth experimenting with for sure.
One of the better product review/rants we’ve ever read. Here’s a taste.
“This piece of shit keyboard is so terrible it makes me want to just type the word “abortion” 1,000 times and then put my hands and testicles in a waffle iron.”

Headcase’s Etch A Sketch iPad case is a nice, HP Tablet-sized option.
The newest version of the mophie juice pack air for iPhone 4 protects your phone and greatly extends power for all your smartphone needs via its built in battery system. This version is pretty sleek and matches the shape of the device quite nicely – wrapping the corners and adding a small curved bump shape to the back of the phone (the prior version for the 3G phone nicely matched the curved shape, but thickened the phone somewhat more).
The DTV Shredder from BPG Werks is a cross between a skateboard and a Segway with a Sherman Tank. The DTV is available commercially and they even have team riders.
