Saving the Rainforest with Old Cell Phones
WRITTEN BY LIESL ULRICH-VERDERBER
Rainforests have some of the most complicated soundscapes on the planet. In this dense noise of insects, primates, birds, and everything else that moves in the forest, how can you detect the sounds of illegal logging?
The old cell phone you have sitting in your desk drawer may have the answer.

How do you go about saving the rainforest with old cell phones?
- After a visit to the rainforests of Borneo, physicist and engineer Topher White was struck by the sounds of the forest. In particular, the noises he couldn’t hear.
- While on a walk, Whitefewer and others came across an illegal logger sawing down a tree just a few hundred meters away from a ranger station.
- This incident set White thinking that perhaps the best way to save the Earth’s precious rainforest is to listen to its loggers and poachers. The innovation he came up with, Rainforest Connection, uses old cell phones to help to save the planet in a big way.
A Rainforest and a Reef in the Middle of the Desert?
What would a colony on Mars really look like? Could we take a piece of our planet with us to space?
It’s hard to answer these kinds of questions without a little experimenting here on Earth. Explore of to know it how do you even begin to study such complex systems?
How about creating a rain forest under 6,500 windows in the middle of an Arizona desert?
we take you to Biosphere a remarkable place that is experimenting with how life on other planets might look!
This marvel of technology, biology, and long term experimentation is a living lab taking a close look at Earth’s complex systems!
So, let’s head to Arizona with The Good stuff and check out this incredible place!
At the Volcano’s Edge
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stand at the edge of a lava lake?
Explore it to know it Perhaps this is not the wish of the average person, but for filmmaker and explorer Sam Cossman, this is exactly what he set out to do.
In 2014, Cossman set out on an expedition to document Marum, an active volcano, on the island of Ambrym in the archipelago nation of Vanuatu.
We take you along for the ride, experiencing the beauty and power of life at the edge of one of the world’s most active volcanoes.
We begin with a brief overview of what compelled Cossman to take on this adventure, and some of the remarkable images that came out of this incredible endeavor.
Intel is Betting On Less With New Smartglasses
Over the years, we’ve seen folks try and fail at the smart glasses game. Google Glasses never had chance, and even the Snap Spectacles heyday has come to an end. But that’s not stopping Intel from getting in on the fun.
The glasses are called Vaunt, first seen by the Verge, and they are nearly indistinguishable from regular glasses.
Instead of some cumbersome headset with a special screen, Intel’s Vaunt glasses are simple plastic frames that weigh under 50 grams (nearly the exact weight of Snap Spectacles).
The smart glasses work with prescription and non-prescription lenses, and there is no camera equipped.
To any onlooker, you might just be wearing a pair of Warby Parkers.
But on the inside of the stems sits a low-powered class one laser, as well as a processor, an accelerometer, a Bluetooth chip and a compass.
This laser, which Intel says is “so low-power that it’s at the very bottom end of a class one laser,” emits a red, monochrome image into your eye at 400 x 150 pixels.
The image might let you know it’s someone’s birthday, send notifications from your phone, or the glasses might detect that you’re in the kitchen and send you a recipe. Because the laser is beaming directly into your retina, the image is always in focus.
While future models might be equipped with a microphone and access to smart assistants like Alexa or Siri, the first-gen Vaunt models will be controlled through subtle motion gestures like a nod of the head. Intel wants these glasses to fit into your life as naturally as possible.
While it’s unclear just how the Vaunt glasses will come to market, Intel has said that the OEM route is a more likely strategy than Intel selling these specs themselves.
And, relatedly, Intel will be opening up the platform to developers with the launch of an early access program and SDK.
While it’s unclear if a product like this has wings in the market, Intel’s Vaunt currently represents the most promising version of ‘smart glasses’ we’ve yet seen.
However, this project is in the very early stages of development, so there’s no telling when, or even if, this comes to fruition in a meaningful way.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies
Hyperloop, an idea from Tesla CEO and SpaceX Founder Elon Musk, boasts of a transportation system which proposes to propel a pod-like vehicle through a near-vacuum tube at nearly 1,100 km per hour and above.
The pod lifts off the track using magnetic levitation and glides at aircraft speeds for long distances, owing to ultra-low aerodynamic drag.
In February this year, Rob Lloyd, CEO of Hyperloop One, met Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and promised to revolutionise the advanced surface system in the country.
If implemented, it would be possible to travel from Delhi to Mumbai in 55 minutes, Mumbai to Chennai in 50 minutes and Bengaluru to Chennai in 20 minutes.
