Introducing… Tree Wi-Fi?!?

How Cool Is This!!!

A Netherlands startup called TreeWiFi wants to motivate the citizens of Amsterdam to go green by giving them free wi-fi. The company has created a high-tech birdhouse that measures air pollution and doles out free Internet access when pollution levels are reduced.

They hope that the boxes, which glow neon green when the air nearby is clean, will inspire Amsterdam residents to adopt environmentally friendly behaviors, like biking to work instead of driving. Each TreeWiFi box also records local pollution data, showing researchers how much air quality changes from street-to-street.
