A PR flack who works in 4th Industrial Revolution Tech just emailed this pitch
I was about to pitch the pitch into Trash, but thought you might like to see what these crackpots are tinkering with.
The word reimagined is Marxist word-salad. And it makes me want to vomit. Women reimagined have dicks.
Tell us it will pick up human voices by telling us it won’t pick up human voices.
Conveniently, this keeps you in place at ‘home’…’local.’ No need to fart CO2 into the atmosphere with nasty airplane travel that’s reserved for the Overlords of the Climate PsyOp: Bill Gates, John Kerry, The Obamas, Clintons, not to mention the Euro trash Titans of global feudalism.
AI will NOT browbeat you into self-hatred for eating animal protein. We promise.

(EMPHASIS NOT MINE)
We are reaching out regarding the launch of new outdoor smart-home technology that turns your outdoor space into a wildlife listening and learning station. This device is wonderful for families, nature lovers, outdoor adventurers, camping and hiking enthusiasts, and conservation scientists alike.
This is the latest invention from eco-tech pioneer and Nat Geo Explorer, Topher White, sponsored by Rolex and Google, amongst others. His first device, the Guardian, is used widely around the world today to protect the Earth's most endangered rainforests (see The New York Times and a film by Google).
Now, Topher’s using his 10 years of experience making tech to help the planet to create something new to help everyone explore and learn about natural landscapes much closer to home – your own backyard or balcony, a local park or garden, or your favorite wilderness and hiking areas.
The Delta is reimagined Guardian technology that looks like a brushed aluminum mini spaceship you might imagine traversing the galaxy. But this small, semi-triangular device full of tech fits snugly into any outdoor space, easily mounted on a tree or in your garden, allowing you to discover the natural world right outside your door.
Powerful enough to capture the sounds of all living creatures, but “smart” enough not to pick up human noises, the Delta connects to your phone and home electronics to entertain, protect, educate, and advise you and your family about the animal activities just beyond your walls. Stream the sounds of your own outdoor space during family meditation, or learn to identify different species of birds solely by their calls.
Squibbon, the Delta's companion app with state-of-the-art AI, lets you listen in and create amazing stories and content inspired by the voices and activities of your animal neighbors. With the opportunity to name and visualize your regular outdoor visitors, the Squibbon app uses data from nature to engage the creativity of children and adults alike!
The device also functions as a backyard computer and outdoor smart home device, with built-in sensors for gas, fire, and smoke detection, helping keep your family safe. Together, the Delta and Squibbon make your accessible outdoor spaces into safe, nature-rich zones of learning and adventure.
The product will launch on March 21st on Kickstarter — just in time for a special Earth Day event that we are calling our "Global Backyard Listening Party for the Planet,” streaming on various social media platforms and featuring live audio feeds from natural habitats all over the world.
We would love to set up a time for you to speak with Topher about Squibbon and the Delta and interview him if you wish. Our only requirement is that any piece is held until the launch date, March 21st. Looking forward to connecting!
I’m not sure why Veruca Salt popped into my head, but here you go.
And I love you guys for staying in the fight, just not in the creepy California-State-Senator-Scott-Wiener kind of way.
