Want to become a “plant-org”, half plant half human? This might soon be possible thanks to a new engeneering technique. Scientists are developing a new approach in tissues regeneration to replace damaged human heart tissues with decelluralized spinach leaves.
Imagine a community with an alternative kind of currency, what would it look like? Last weekend Next Nature Network teamed up with DGTL Music Festival in Amsterdam to launch the ECO coin, a digital currency to reward people who actively contribute to a more sustainable world. Over 40.000 visitors attended the festival, turning our first grand experiment into a success.
On the occasion of the Earth Day, 22 April 2017, NNN director Koert van Mensvoort will share his Letter to Humanity. In the letter he urges humans not to be slaves or victims of their own technology, but instead to use technology to enhance humanity. His hope is to encourage a new perspective on the role of man on Earth. Translated in over twenty‐five languages, the Letter to Humanity is addressed to all 7 billion people on Earth. Stay tuned!
What better way to celebrate Easter than with a fun egg hunt? This year you can upgrade your hunt and search for next nature eggs instead! Do away with dishonest health claims for eggs and uncertain promises of organic, free-range hens. Find Honest Eggs on the shelves of the NANO Supermarket at DGTL Festival in Amsterdam this weekend. Or what about some Marrow Eggs? These dainty “eggs” aren’t filled with yolk, but with snow-white cultured marrow. You can get a “taste” of the marrow egg and 29 other exquisite recipes at our Meat the Future expo at CUBE Design Museum in Kerkrade. The exhibition is opened on Easter and Easter Monday from 10:00 to 17:00. The holidays are filled with traditions, it is up to us to create new ones. Happy Easter everybody!
Imagine you can hear WiFi, every area would have its own soundscape. Streets, parks, subways, hotels, highways; they all sound different. WiFi radiation is everywhere, yet invisible to our human senses. The WiFi Angels app lets you sense electromagnetic radiations by turning the WiFi networks that surround you into a celestial choir. On the 21st of April at 21:00, our angels will guide you to the Telemagic paranormal tech fair in Worm, Rotterdam. The exhibition showcases 25 stands of spiritual healing for the technological body. Get ready for a discourse of consciousness in cyberspace. Next time you search for WiFi, just follow the angels!
Ever wondered how does the Internet taste like? Lemons, obviously! Scientists at the National University of Singapore succeeded in digitally transmitting the basic look and taste of a freshly poured glass of lemonade to a simple glass of water. It works as follows: use a sensory device to calculate the color and pH levels of the beverage, send these data to a special jug, which then mimics the specifications of the drink with a pulse of electricity. A LED light will make sure your refreshment has the right color tone, cheers!
