Great way to get photos of birds using your smartphone
Jeeze — is everything out there a “smart” device now? With devices like the “Bird Photo Booth” hitting the shelves, it definitely appears so:
The next generation of feeders, if you will, is a cafeteria for birds that includes within it a space for a smartphone or GoPro Camera. As the birds fly in to eat the treats, the phone or camera captures up-close shots and then sends them by way of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technology to a secondary device for viewing pleasure.
It should be noted that the secondary device is responsible for controlling the shutter along with choosing what kind of imagery to capture: the program ranges from macro pictures to HD video of the birds as they chow down.
For those a bit protective over their phone, one need not worry about a bird going AWOL and attacking the device: the case is highly protective of the electronics it houses. The mount built into it allows a user to attach whatever bird feeder they want to it and move it all around too in order to get the best possible view of the birds.
Attach one of our portable speakers to the side of the camera housing unit to play some bird sounds and who knows — you might actually get the birds to stay around a bit longer!
