Laser cut open source bee hive model for the OSBH project

Standard

The Open Source Beehives project proposes to design hives that can support bee colonies in a sustainable way, to monitor and track the health and behaviour of a colony as it develops. Each hive contains an open source sensory kit, The Smart Citizen Kit (SCK), which can transmit to an open data platform: Smartcitizen.me

These sensor enhanced hive designs are open and freely available online. I forked the little desktop sized bee hive model, made it metric and CNC laser cutted it for OSBH. It will be displayed at the OuiShare Summit Berlin and advertise the OSBH-workshops which will happen in July.
