‘Plan Bee’ Drone Artificially Pollinates Flowers on Behalf of Bees



Industrial designer Anna Haldewang has created a bee-like drone that could replace real bees in pollinating flowers, should the population die out. Aptly named ‘plan bee’ the prototype is a self sustainable device that works peacefully alongside nature in order to continue to growth of plants by cross-pollination.

The project draws parallels with earlier research from this year by Japanese scientist Eijiro Miyako, who successfully pollinated a flower using a $100 drone from amazon covered with patches of horse hair.

‘Plan bee’ builds on the concept of drone pollination, taking the design a step further. The drone is created to mirror the image of a flower while it interacts with the plant, and the essence of the bee is reproduced through the drone’s black and yellow stripes.

The plan bee drone is designed to mimic the shape of a flower.

The drones could be reproduced to work on a large agricultural scale.
