Leafsnap, a new mobile app that identifies plants by leaf shape, is launched by Smithsonian and collaborators  The Smithsonian Institution, Columbia University and the University of Maryland have pooled their expertise to create the world’s first plant identification mobile app using visual search—Leafsnap. This electronic field guide allows users to identify tree species simply by taking a photograph of the tree’s leaves. In addition to the species name, Leafsnap provides high-resolution photographs and information about the tree’s flowers, fruit, seeds and bark—giving the user a comprehensive understanding of the species. Smithsonian botanist John Kress uses the new mobile app to correctly identify a katsura tree (Cercidiphyllum japonicum) growing in the Smithsonian’s Enid A. “We wanted to use mathematical techniques we were developing for face recognition and apply them to species identification,” said Peter Belhumeur, professor of computer science at Columbia and leader of the Columbia team working on Leafsnap.

Horizontal Shower by Dornbracht Have you ever had trouble mustering up enough energy to take a shower after a long, hot day at work? Well, the fine engineers at Dornbracht have a solution: the Horizontal Shower. The Horizontal Shower was unveiled at a trade show in Basel, Switzerland recently, and was met with a ton of praise. I mean, it’s showering while laying down, which CEO Andreas Dornbracht describes it as “total relaxation, the kind only experienced by someone reclining. Tension in the head and muscles melts away, everyday stress is washed away with the water; body and mind are revitalized.” The shower features an array of showerheads controlled by an Ambiance Tuning Technique system, allowing the showerheads to be programmed and tuned to cycle through different intensities and water temperatures.

Make Your Own Alchemy / Prepping, Planting and Harvesting Does “black gold” make you think of “Texas Tea,” or that three-letter-word, oil? If you’re a gardener, they don’t. For us, black gold can only mean one thing: compost. A good compost pile is your soil’s dearest friend. You may think compost building is complicated, but it doesn’t need to be. Mother Nature composts all the time. Although bagged compost is sold at most garden centers, it’s easy and almost free to make your own. In a new pile, layer brown matter: shredded fallen leaves, old foliage without disease, and brown grasses (if they haven’t been sprayed with chemicals like herbicides or pesticides). Garden bins make keeping the pile in one place easy. I think a three-bin system works best. If you live in a very dry climate like mine normally is, water the pile every week in the summer to keep it moist. When you add green matter, top it with a layer of shredded leaves or dirt. Don’t add dairy or meat products.
