The Hyde Park Tree of Souls will use 20 miles of fibre optic cable, change colour, give off a glow and use sensors to react to people.
Turns out that the Speakers Corner attraction is also a Tree of iSouls as fans will be able to plug in their iPods (or phones) to upload messages to an screen built into the tree (I’m pretty sure that Na’vi tree didn’t do that).
The tree is the brainchild of Twentieth Century Fox and Earth Day 2010. As part of the campaign Twentieth Century Fox will plant a real tree whenever anyone uploads/interacts with the Hyde Park Tree of Souls through their phone or iPod.
They’ll be waiting until it’s dark until they unveil the tree – so be there for 8pm, Saturday 24th of April, if you want to see it and Stephen Lang.
