If you’ve ever wondered what a tree might say, then this social experiment might just answer all your questions! EOS Magazine decided to hook up a 100 year old tree, living on the edge of Brussels, to a dust meter, ozone meter, light meter, weatherstation, webcam and microphone in the attempt to convert the tree’s feelings into human words!

A custom app takes live data and converts that through a number of algorithms into thoughts, feelings and comments through the eyes of the tree. Those comments have been synced live to Twitter, Youtube, Flickr and Facebook among other things…

The tree already has over 6,000 fans on Facebook. Don’t forget to check out the site here.
