BirdBuddy startup presents a “smart” hummingbird feeder and bird bath. From now on, bird lovers and ornithologists will watch birds from a distance, pictures from Bird Buddy will come directly to their smartphones, according to Gizmodo.
Bird Buddy uses artificial intelligence and a camera to transmit images and identify birds. Images uploaded to the cloud are always available and allow you to see the birds. Artificial intelligence will determine the species of birds.
A new version of the hummingbird feeder with an integrated sweet nectar tank that attracts them was unveiled at CES 2023. And recently, during the official launch on Kickstarter, Bird Buddy introduced a bathtub that attracts birds on hot days.
The original version of the Bird Buddy has a built-in camera with a resolution of 5 megapixels. She shoots HD video with a viewing angle of 120 degrees. The feeder lures birds into the frame with seeds and water. The device is powered by a rechargeable battery that charges several times a week, or an additional solar charger installed on the feeder.
The first donors on Kickstarter can order a new “smart” hummingbird feeder at a discount — for $174 instead of $235. The bath will cost $184 instead of $249. In the new model, the camera module of the Bird Buddy is removable. It can be purchased for $259 instead of $349 and used alternately for both devices. Additional funds are needed to purchase a variety of mounting racks and accessories.
Earlier we told that Xiaomi presented a new device — smart rope Mijia Smart Skipping Rope, which can be used without a cord. Currently, the novelty is at the stage of crowdfunding.
