World's Smallest Monkeys

If you're looking for cute furry animals then you'll be in for a treat over at Dark Roasted Blend, who this week have collated a spread of some of the not-so-well-known primates of the planet.

The "Aww" inducing list includes the titchy thumb-sized pygmy marmoset monkey, named after the French word marmouset, which means shrimp, or dwarf, "They range in length from 5 to 6 inches not including the tail, which is an amazing 6 to 8 inches," say DRB. There are 18 recorded species of marmoset and, unlike other monkeys they have claws rather than nails, tactile hairs on their wrists and lack wisdom teeth, making them slightly more primitive than other monkeys.
Pygmy marmosets are found in the rainforests of Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Columbia. They live in the upper canopy of the forest, no doubt to steer clear of bigger, heavier predators, and survive on an omnivorous diet of fruit, leaves, insects, small reptiles and their favorite nibble, tree sap. Specialized incisors enable the marmoset to gnaw through even the toughest tree bark, allowing easy access to their favorite gummy fluid.

Living in groups of two to six, usually consisting of a breeding pair plus their offspring, marmoset families are fiercely territorial often defending an area of up to 100 acres – that's a lot of rainforest for the midget mammals. Don't expect to see them in the wild though; they're nippy little blighters and move like lighting through the trees, so you'll have to make do with these sweet pics instead.

eCO2 Carbon Watch

Carbon Dioxide Scrubber is a device researched by David Keith and his team. The system looks at capturing CO2 directly from the air and making it cleaner. Not completely devoid of shortcomings, the technology of reducing diffused emissions has the on the fence. Here is a concept that looks at that addressing the issue of an individual doing his bit for the environment. The eCO2 is a personal scrubber that tries to erase the personal carbon footprint of the individual.
The question here is not whether the eCO2 concept is realistic or not. Instead, let us see what all it tries to do, to make us more responsible citizens of this planet. Fashioned as an athletic wristwatch it uses kinetic energy as a clean power source. Although it does function as a regular watch, it also constantly keeps pulling in air through the intake vents collecting CO2, and expels new clean air via the exhaust vents. A step in the right direction for an individual, the eCO2 has the potential to make a powerful impact if worn collectively. Now only if somehow we could balance out the pros and the cons of a carbon dioxide scrubber.
