Visitors can bring the tree to life. Sensors within the tree’s trunk change colour and intensity as people move. People can also plug in their iPods to cause the tree to glow and pulsate in time with the music being played. They can upload images and messages to a screen in the tree from local Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networks.

 

Visitors to Hyde Park were greeted with a high-tech model of the Tree of Souls from James Cameron’s film Avatar last weekend. The tree, which featured 20 miles of fibre optic cable, used sophisticated sensors to allow visitors to interact with the tree, change its colours and upload photographs.
