wanting to keep the bird and its meal the center of attention, israeli designer nitsan hoorgin from HIT – holon institute of technology in israel has created ‘clip and tweet’. the brief was to design a product for the garden, and the food device aims to attract birds using bread leftovers. a real-life interactive accessory that brings a new type of ‘tweeting’ to the home. the product is easy to use, reliable and recyclable and sure to be a hit with new avian garden visitors.
