Saw this at ‘Kimball Jenkins‘ today (in Concord, N.H.).

Using ultrasound to see if the inside of a big, old tree is sound (i.e., not rotting). Pretty cool. Just have to place a number of probes around the circumference of the tree, at various points, measure the circumference so that the software knows how far apart the probes are … press a button (which activates the probes and Bluetooth … and Bob’s your uncle. Image (shown above) comes up on a tablet. Green is GOOD. So, this tree is sound bar some slight damage at one edge.

Pretty cool. I was very impressed.
