Philips has shed light on an ingenious and aesthetically pleasing concept aimed at those seeking to harvest their own honey. Separated into two parts — a wall-mounted outdoor flower pot holder with an entry point and a connected indoor glass shell that houses honeycomb frames — this contraption allows for a scaled-down beehive to be installed right in the living room. For those urban dwellers interested in trying their hand at beekeeping without the cumbersome gear, this concept allows you to do so in a mess- and pain-free manner. Simply pull the actuator draw chain and watch homemade honey ooze from the container, while the bees rest calmly sedated.
