Innovative books that grow back into trees


An Argentinian publisher has come up with an innovative idea for its books – they can grow back into trees.

Pequeno Editor’s Tree Book Tree is an educational program designed to teach young children where books come from, using the motto ‘trees and children can grow together’.

Each hand-stitched book is made from acid-free paper, jacaranda seeds, and ecologically friendly ink, so it will eventually grow back into a tree when planted.

Watch this innovative educational project in action below – and let us know if you’d like to see this project where you live.

Snickers launches voice recognition tool


Taking inspiration from Apple’s Siri, Snickers has developed recently its new voice recognition tool.

The chocolate brand has launched i-voice, its own voice recognition tool, as part of its ‘You’re Not You When You’re Hungry’ campaign.

I-voice is based on mobile voice-activated personal assistants, but will deliver much more sarcastic and unhelpful answers.

It only becomes helpful once the brand’s name shows up in the search results, emphasising the campaign’s strapline.
