‘bird photo booth’ allows you to get up close and personal with birds

 

the ’bird photo booth‘ is the first feeder which has been developed to house an iPhone, iPod touch and GoPro set,
giving one the ability to observe bird activity up close and personal via a live stream to their iPad, computer or other mobile device
through a Wi-Fi or bluetooth connection.

developed by bryson lovett, the handcrafted wooden compartment is concealed by an aluminium front door that is designed so that your wireless gadget is
correctly positioned behind a macro optic lens embedded into the closure, enabling you to harness your iPhone’s built-in face detection technology
to reveal the detail of birds’ expressions which would normally not be visible to the human eye using one of the suggested apps
such as air beam, duplicam or remote shutter. because of this set-up, your photos and other footage captured rival DSLRs at a fraction of the cost,
allowing iPhone 4S prints to be enlarged to up to 52 x 52 inches without pixelation.

currently available for iPhone 3,4,5, iPod touch and GoPro/GoPro Hero2 with Wi-Fi bacpac. a universal android insert is coming soon.

the ‘bird photo booth’ project is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
