Buddy / Glue


A crisis called Bird-Strike, which refers to the accidents by birds crashing windows, is frequently happening. For that reason, numerous birds and windows get critically damaged. Government and skyscraper managements have adequate solutions for that. However, it is impossible to be practiced in the individual aspect such as ordinary homes since the solutions require high budget and complicated process of construction. The difference of view between man and bird buddy uses UV ink and this idea is based ona fact that UV ray is invisible for human beings but visible for birds.
