everybody's doing the pigeon

Some researchers in San Jose just gonna load GPS, mobile and air-pollution sensors on pigeons to mobile-blog pollution data. I guess if the batteries gonna last and the pigeon won't die from exhaustion, this will finally be a useful idea for attaching technology to these urban creatures.
Oh and it will have a camera as well. I didn't see any photos of the prototype yet, so you will have to go to San Jose yourself this august, I am afraid.
