Glowing Perch by OOOMS Attracts Insects for Birds at Night

By: Katie Cordrey - Published: Apr 3, 2009 • References:
Dutch designers Karin van Lieshout and Guido Ooms at Studio OOOMS have come up with an innovative application for a small solar panel: a birdhouse with a perch that lights up at night.

Sunlight feeds the solar panel that in turn charges a small battery inside. Once the sun goes down, a transparent perch stick casts a tiny insect-attracting light.

As insects near the light, the housed bird can pop her head out the birdhouse hole and snag a tasty snack.  Stats for Solar Birdhouses Trending: Older & Chilly
