Cellphone Masts Disguised as Trees are Outdated

There is a new version of the well-known cellphone masts disguised as trees. Instead of adding fake nature to these masts, ChamTech Operations wants to put a layer of invisible technology onto nature, therefore keeping it "authentic".

The small company developed a special nano particle mix spray which turns trees into high-powered antennas, a nice addition to the 'Streetlight Trees'.  The spray also works for enhancing the strength of current antennas. There will be no more failed calls with your iPhone 4 and no more annoyance over missing an important message due to poor signal strength. There could even be high bandwidth connections with cars, with the mix integrated in the white lines of the highway.

This pushes our 'connectedness' a whole lot further. Even when we decide to flee from social pressure to the forest (or any other remote place), we are still connected. Instead of being limited by technology, we are now limited by our conscience and our perseverance.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
