How This Futuristic Beehive is Helping Rebuild Vanuatu : News : Nature World News

Flow Hive, the futuristic beehive that is taking 90 percent of the labor out of beekeeping, and saving honeybees in the process, recently set its sights on saving a new group in danger – the citizens of Vanuatu. The small island nation was recently ravaged by Cyclone Pam, and in 24 hours, the Flow Hive inventors managed to raise nearly $100,000 for rebuilding efforts.

How the heck did they pull this off? It’s important to remember that Flow Hive has been something of a crowdfunding miracle. Asking for a modest target goal of $70,000 to get things started in its own Indigogo campaign, the invention has reached that target 110 times over, with nearly 20,000 experts and amateur beekeepers alike backing the project.
