The Flemish have always been known for talking to plants, so perhaps it's no surprise that a Talking Tree has been found in Brussels. This collab between EOS Magazine and Happiness Brussels sees a 100 year old tree outfitted with a dust meter, ozone meter, light meter, weather station, webcam and microphone, all of which report back to web 2.0 mainstays Twitter, Flickr, Soundcloud, and Facebook, as well as its own website (talking-tree.com). Now you can finally find out what it looks, sounds, and feels like to be a tree -- without psychoactive drugs. Video after the break.

[Thanks, Ramin]
