This cleverly designed bird house is pretty silly, although it does serve its dual purpose as both a bird house and a security device.

The closed captioned TV camera appearance can deter criminals, although it might lose some of its effect if a burglar sees a bird flying in and out of the “lens”.

Implications - Consumers are trying to incorporate more nature into their lives as a response to increasing technological influence on everyday society. Corporations may benefit from utilizing nature-themed design motifs in their wares to entice consumer business.
