Nomination of the week: Synthetic Pollenizer
Could this bee the solution to save our yellow fuzzy friends?

The Synthetic Pollenizer, created by Michael Candy, is a conceptual project designed to help increase the dwindling bee population. The robotic canola flower (or rapeseed) provides a safer method of artificial pollination using 3D-printed robotic flowers. Candy’s flowers, while not infected with pesticides, are all equipped with pollen and nectar and are designed to be installed alongside real plants.
