Exclusive video: The Barr Brothers perform at the Pickathon Music Festival

Click here to view the embedded video.

Somewhere between a dusty Americana and West African groove lies the soulful grit and instrumentally diverse folk-rock sound evoked from The Barr Brothers. The Montreal-based quartet features mesmerizing slide guitar, evocative vocals, and intense drumming, interwoven with soft, subtle harp drifts. Their rich, avant-garde sound is at its finest amongst the trees or atop a mountain — they’ve been known to play upon the rim of the Grand Canyon, welcoming tourists to film them. This year, they are sharing their unique sound at the 2015 Pickathon Music Festival, happening this weekend in Happy Valley, Oregon. Pickathon is the world’s most sustainable large-scale outdoor concert, and we can’t get enough of the sound.

We’ll be releasing a series of exclusive live music videos with Pickathon throughout the fall, so be sure to stay tuned for more new tracks coming from the wilderness of Happy Valley.

The Barr Brothers perform from the Pickathon Mountain Stage

Outdoor concerts and music festivals are notorious for producing insane amounts of waste. From single use cups and beer cans, to the stages themselves, the egregious amounts of litter that is left behind at the end of a show is appalling. Luckily, there’s one indie music festival that is taking great strides to change the concert landscape, and they have great bands too! As the only environmentally-friendly large-scale outdoor music concert, Portland’s Pickathon Music Festival combines great indie bands with eco-designs in Happy Valley, Oregon, including a reusable stage made from 520 upcycled shipping pallets, solar powered lighting, recycling and composting. But if you can’t make it up to Oregon this weekend when it kicks off, don’t fret — starting today Inhabitat will be introducing you to a whole lineup of emerging musicians at Pickathon with an exclusive live broadcast right here. Check out the video above for a sneak peek!

Crazy "missing link" Darwin fish can breathe air, walk on land AND climb trees!

Click here to view the embedded video.

In Australia, there is a fish that has lungs, can walk on dry land, and breathe air, for up to six days. It’s not a new species, but it’s on the move. This has scientists warning that if the reaches the mainland, it could be devastating to native species, who are simply not equipped to share an environment with a super-powered creature such as this.

VIDEO: Seagull steals GoPro, gives us a birds-eye view of Spanish coast

by , 07/26/15

It’s just one of those things: you’re on vacation in Spain, checking out the beauty of the Cies Islands after a morning of running around capturing the sights on your GoPro. You put your camera down on a wall, when it attracts the attention of a seagull. No biggie, it’s not as though it can eat it, right? But what it can do —and did— is snag the GoPro with its beak and take the camera for a scenic flyover along the coast. As the video shows, the owners of the camera had a moment of panic, but the seagull safely deposited the GoPro back down on solid ground, and left the brief, dizzying, but incredibly cool footage for all to view.

With the arrival of warm weather comes the pleasure of spending time outdoors. Whether it be enjoying the fresh air, the abundance of new greens and herbs or the ability to spend entire days outside, we just can’t get enough. So what could be better than combining them all into one splendid activity which replaces the need to grocery shop or make a trip to the gym? Here at Inhabitat, foraging – finding wild edibles near our house – is one of our favorite pastimes. Foraging is available to anyone with access to nature – whether that is a nearby urban park, your backyard or nearby patch of weeds. We recently set off on a foraging adventure in the urban jungle of New York City to collect wild salad greens in Central Park with NYC’s beloved master forager, “Wildman” Steve Brill. Read on for our recipe to make a delicious, locally foraged salad using common wild greens and herbs that can be found right in your local park.

In light of all the dire news related to climate change, rising sea levels and the natural disasters which have stricken numerous coastal areas around the world, we here at Inhabitat would like to highlight an interview Inhabitat Editor-in-Chief Jill Fehrenbacher conducted with architect Koen Olthuis of Waterstudio.nl. A studio focused on designing for a future water world, Olthuis has been at the forefront of this once unconventional, yet now timely design vernacular. Olthuis says that despite our civilization’s history of trying to drain and fight against wet landscapes for the past thousand years, our best move for the future would be to “let water in and even make friends with the water.” Read on for the fascinating interview where Olthius describes his what designing for water landscapes worldwide really means.

We’ve showcased numerous bamboo designs over the years, from furniture to entire buildings, but when it comes to combining green building and renewable materials, Ibuku’s incredible bent-bamboo buildings take the cake. The Bali-based bamboo building team already has luxury villas, houses, schools and infrastructure buildings in their portfolio, and is renowned for their dedication to using traditional Indonesian building techniques. We spoke with the firm’s founder and CEO, designer Elora Hardy, about vernacular architecture traditions, her involvement with designing bamboo buildings, and the reasons behind her vocational change from high-end fashion to sustainable architecture

This sweet dog and lion duo proves that friendship transcends all barriers

Meet Honey the dog and Kwanza the white lion cub: a pair of best friends at the Darling Downs Zoo in Queensland, Australia. Kwanza’s mum wasn’t producing enough milk for him, so the lovely caregivers at the zoo took him in and have been taking care of him. He’s become best friends with a little dog named Honey, and the two of them romp around the zoo all day, playing together and grooming one another. Kwanza is Queensland’s first white lion, and once he grows up he’ll be introduced to “regular-colored” lionesses so he can become head of pride and build a family of his own.

Wi-Fi-powered electronics make Nikola Tesla's dream a reality

by , 06/08/15

Click here to view the embedded video.

What if you could power your iPhone from thin air? Making wires redundant was one of Nikola Tesla’s biggest dreams – a dream University of Washington researchers want to fulfill with PoWiFi. Shyam Gollakota and his team recently demonstrated technology at EmTech Digital in San Francisco that harvests ambient ‘backscatter’ radio signals to power battery-free temperature and camera sensors. The technology can also be used to charge nickel–metal hydride and lithium-ion coin-cell batteries at distances of up to 28 feet. In a recent paper describing their work, called Powering the Next Billion Devices with Wi-Fi, the researchers provide a detailed description of how they successfully powered devices over WiFi using existing Wi-Fi chipsets–without reducing the router’s performance. Details after the jump.

All-electric flying bicycle takes to the skies in first manned flight

Click here to view the embedded video.

Flying bikes have come a long way since Steven Spielberg sent Eliot flying towards the moon in E.T; notably, there are some very real, Hollywood-SFX-free ones in development. Aeroflex’s Hoverbike has so far reached a top speed of 30mph, and a maximum flying height of 15 feet, and now a team from Hungary has developed an all-electric flying bike that just recently achieved its first manned venture. The tricopter vehicle—dubbed Flike—has so far stayed aloft in controlled tests for over a minute, and with lithium-polymer batteries to power the cycle’s six rotors it has the capacity to sustain a 30-40 minute flight.

Newly discovered underwater creatures caught on camera for the first time

Click here to view the embedded video.

The deep seas are host to a vast number of extraordinary, completely alien creatures, ranging from the rare and somewhat terrifying Goblin Shark to 18-foot-long sea serpents—and those are just some of the ones we know about. While the oceans cover two-thirds of the planet’s surface, we have only explored some five percent of them, which means that there is almost literally a world of unknown sea creatures out there that we have yet to discover—and these extraordinarily beautiful, yet to be named creatures recently filmed off the coast of Puerto Rico are the most recent to be caught on camera for the first time.

This woman can fit two years of trash in one small mason jar

Have you ever thought about how much trash you produce in a day? How about a year? The average person generates 4.3 pounds of waste per day; that’s 1,569 pounds per year. Not a great feeling, huh? That harrowing statistic is what inspired New Yorker Lauren Singer to lead a truly zero-waste lifestyle. Singer produces so little waste that she can fit all of her trash from the past two years in a 16 oz. mason jar and now she’s trying to teach the rest of the world how to do the same.
