Catching Loggers with Sound

Have you ever heard what a rain forest sounds like? If so, what do you hear? Are you able to hear the sound of chainsaws in the background? If not, then that is a problem. Illegal logging are going around cutting beautiful trees behind our backs, all while the sound is blending with the sound of nature.

What is the solution for this? Topher White came up with a solution that involves the sun, trees, environmental friendly materials, and used cell phones. That’s right, cell phones that can catch a chainsaw frequency and notify people around the area to stop the loggers in their cutting process.

If you want to hear more about Topher White’s idea, below is the TED talk video. Take the time to hear what YOU can do to help with his startup Rainforest Connection and save the rain forest.
