Pigeons to Blog Pollution
A flock of pigeons fitted with mobile phone backpacks is to be used to monitor air pollution in California, with text messages on air quality to be beamed back in real time to a special pigeon blog.
According to Reuters, Miniature cameras slung around the pigeons’ necks will also post aerial pictures to the pigeon blog.
The pigeons will take to the air at the inter-Society for Electronic Arts’ annual symposium in San Jose on August 5.
