Can robotic hives help save the world’s bees?

Brian Heater writes in TechCrunch about a robotic hive to save bees.

The C3 Take
  • Around 30% of the Earth’s bee colonies disappear every year.
  • Beewise, an Israel-based startup, is looking to reverse this trend with its robotic hives.
  • The hives are climate controlled, solar-powered, and protect bees from invasive species.
  • Free market innovations are key to a sustainable future.

“Beewise currently offers the product to farmers for a $400 monthly RaaS fee (plus an initial $2,000 delivery/setup fee). That includes 24 colonies and ongoing maintenance. In return, the technology promises benefits like improved bee yields and pollination of surrounding plants — as well as, hopefully, a net benefit to embattled bee populations.”
