Optical illusion saves birds’ lives by preventing plane collisions
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Innovations often aim to improve human lives, yet Springwise has also spotted innovations designed to help other species on our planet. Bio-logging tags that protect endangered species and an app that identifies primates at risk of extinction are just a few examples. Research from the CNRS and Université de Rennes 1, in collaboration with Airbus, could help save avian lives. The scientists have designed an optical illusion made up of concentric black circles on a white background. This creates a so-called 'looming' effect and gives the birds the impression of an upcoming collision. The effect helps birds avoid planes and other high-risk…
