Manu / Spotting Scope

Manu
Manu

manu is a spotting scope for beginners in Birdwatching. The concept is based around the validated assumption that it is possible to get more people to watch birds. manu is designed to be their first. This implies a design that is easy to understand and gives room for future enhancements. Combined with a focus on ecology, which is an important part of the hobby, the entire experience is designed for longevity. These requirements justify the modularity of the concepts. Additional parts enable the birdwatcher to use external devices with an integrative, automated bird recognition system.
