sound reactive nightgown 1
Voice activation is a function electronic devices like cell phones, GPS units and computer include in their feature list to make it more convenient to interact with them but clothing? Yes, clothing too, at least this is what Sarah Soriano, a new media artist with a love to electrify garments is proposing with the sound reactive Nightgown.

Don’t talk2myShirt but to my nightgown and it will start pulling up it’s hemline. The gown uses the Lilypad Arduino, Flexinol – a shape memory alloy for the lifting of the textile and a microphone to pick up the sound/voice.

Insects have played an important part in the history of human nutrition in Africa, Australia, Asia and the Americas . Hundreds of species have been used as human food. Some of the more important groups include grasshoppers, caterpillars, beetle grubs and (sometimes) adults, winged termites (some of which are very large in the tropics), bee, wasp and ant brood (larvae and pupae) as well as winged ants, cicadas, and a variety of aquatic insects. Ordinarily, insects are not used as emergency food to ward off starvation, but are included as a normal part of the diet throughout the year or when seasonally available. Via [Food-Info.net]

Crapstone is a village in the county of Devon. The village is located on the edge of Dartmoor and is approximately 1 mile from the village of Yelverton, 9 miles from the city of Plymouth and 5 miles from Tavistock. http://img.groundspeak.com/waymarking/display/1ca5aa11-8289-4f71-a654-cef448e34e76.jpg

In 2007 Crapstone was used as the name of the village in a television advert for the RAC. Local residents started a protest group on the social networking site Facebook complaining that the village used in the television advert was not actually Crapstone but a location using its name. One member of the group has stated that the location for filming was near ‘The Pimple’ at Tavistock; however none of this was mentioned in the advert; not even in small print. via Wiki

In Britain we have a huge portfolio of towns and villages with strange, Bizarre and Rude place names but this has clealry not affected the price. On sale currnetly in the village of Crapstone is a 7 bedroom detached luxury pad.

A Victorian detached house offering considerable potential standing in a mature level garden, offered for sale for the first time in 60 years.

The partly tree lined setting forms part of a quality residential area within the village of Crapstone, very close to the south west fringe of the Dartmoor National Park, north of Plymouth. Roborough Down, with its wide open space of moorland, lies only about 100 yards away.

The village is about one mile from the National Trust Buckland Abbey and is also about a mile from the larger village of Yelverton which offers a wide range of shops, health centre, recreation ground, churches and other facilities. Yelverton Golf Club is about a mile distant.

Crapstone itself includes a small number of local shops and businesses while at Buckland Monachorum, a mile way, there is a local pub, church and a well respected primary school. The Crescent is possibly the most desirable part of the village, with quiet surroundings and seclusion offered by established trees and mature gardens, which also protect the property.
