The Super-K experiment (shown here empty of water) has observed slightly more neutrinos at night than during the day. The result agrees with theoretical predictions that a fraction of the neutrinos passing through the Earth convert into the electron flavor, the neutrino type to which Super-K is most sensitive to.

MIDI Sprout

Kickstarter campaign for music device put together by Data Garden which can covert the biorhythms of plants into music - video embedded below:

MIDI Sprout enables plants to play synthesizers in real time.

MIDI Sprout is a biorhythm to MIDI converter that will allow you to create music from your houseplants and discover the power of biofeedback art for yourself.

Our vision is to give people the ability to convert the activities of plants into music. Anybody with a computer or synthesizer can use MIDI Sprout to investigate the secret life of plants.

MIDI Sprout represents a growing community interested in learning about nature by turning its biofeedback into music. This is the beginning of the global DIY biofeedback movement.

You can find out more at the Kickstarter campaign page here, or at the Data Garden website here

datagarden also have a Tumblr blog here
