New Meaning to Watching the Box

National Bird Nesting Box Week can be celebrated in style?

A Solihull based entrepreneur has combined his passions for nature and technology to create a world first. Peter Bubb, who has spent over 20 years in the IT industry, tapped into support from Mustard.uk.com to exploit a gap in the market, creating a unique nesting box, which allows anyone keen on birds to watch wild birds close-up through the use of a wireless web cam.

Having researched the field, it soon emerged that enthusiasts were crying out for a system that allowed you to witness what was going on without disturbing their natural habitat and nesting habits, explained Peter. Once I became aware of what these issues were, I paired up with Foneapps and Coventry Information Technologies to investigate ways of developing an effective solution. As a result of this partnership, we have applied for various patents to protect the technology involved.

The result is a revolutionary quick release video pod, which sends signals connecting to a standard TV or PC, removing the need for cable running from the nesting box. As a result, owners can move the wireless camera about as many times as they want to ensure they find the ideal spot to capture images, and then, use their PCs to share their videos and photos with other enthusiasts.
