Introduction: Screaming Trees: Birdhouse
Screaming trees, giving trees a voice. At Havas we have developed a self-sufficient chainsaw-detecting device, which is mounted on tree trunks. Via a built in microphone, it infallibly detects chainsaws within a 20 meter-area and sends out a warning signal if the tree is about to get cut down.
We decided to open this project to everyone that feels like it can make a difference in their own neck of their wood. Now you too can build your own laser cut birdhouse.
