BeeBus / Drone for City Ecosystem

BeeBus
BeeBus

As the size of the city continues to expand, most creatures including bees become driven out of their environment, and the city in which we live in has become gray. Although, worldwide attention on urban beekeeping has increased as of late, the quantity and quality of the system for urban beekeeping in Seoul is still lacking. Rather than a beehive that is fixed in one place, BeeBus is a beekeeping drone that circulates in a designated area such as a bus and thereby activates the ecosystem of a desolate city. BeeBus broadens the area of beekeeping from “partially” to “whole”, it can maintain the ecosystem in which the entire city circulates.
