Open Source Beehives: sensor-enhanced hive design

Tristan from OpenPixel sez, "You might have heard that bees are dropping like flies. When we realised the implications of this (which everyone should look into, because it's serious) we borrowed some ideas from the WikiHouse project and applied them to bees - ie. low cost, distributed, open source manufacturing."

Our aim is to inspire a new generation of backyard beekeepers, improve our understanding of honey bee health, and promote bee colony recovery. We're sharing all our knowledge, designs and data open source style.

We're looking for collaborators - please join out community and help spread the word about the project!
