Robotic flowers suggest new way to help keep bees safe
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.

Brisbane, Australia-based new media artist Michael Candy has translated his interest in robots into a potential lifeline for bees. Pollination of crops by bee is essential to human food consumption, and bees worldwide are suffering. Maladies range from mysterious hive deaths to changing habitats. A number of projects are seeking ways to help support bee populations. An example is the wifi hive monitoring system which is helping smaller scale or personal apiaries remotely track hive health at a cost lower than commercial satellite monitoring. For airborne bees, drone pollinators are being developed to help reduce the volume of work required by each hive for continued crop growing success.
