…Tripwire is a silent coconut?


Tripwire is an interesting solution to the problem of too much noise coming from your local airport.

Designed by the MIT Media Lab, these coconuts were hung from trees around the San Jose International Airport, and then any time one detected noise above the allowed level, it made a call to the complaint hotline and left a pre-recorded complaint. They even stored the data for later analysis.

Are they nuts?
