Cranberry Bog Wakeboarding
“The annual harvesting of cranberries has to be one of the most ingenius methods of fruit farming there is. Every fall after the berries ripen on the vine, instead of being picked by people or machine the fields are flooded with water from a nearby reservoir. Because the berries are filled with air, all it takes is a gentle nudge from a special tractor to knock them loose and float them to the surface where they are quickly and easily collected by the tasty, tart kabillions.
Lucky for us a film crew over at Redbull asked the important question: “What would happen if you pulled a wakeboarder through the ocean of cranberries and filmed with high speed HD film?” This glorious video is the result. The team assures us that no cranberries were injured during production. (via devour)” SOURCE
Back to Light: Artist Caleb Charland Uses Fruit Batteries to Illuminate Long-Exposure Photographs
“Artist Caleb Charland just unveiled several new images from his Back to Light series, where the artist uses nails inside fruit connected with copper wire to create functional batteries. Harnessed to a small lightbulb, the current is sufficient enough to provide illumination for long exposure photographs. Effectively, the organic batteries create enough voltage to light their own portrait.” SOURCE
