Philips Unveils Sexy Urban Beehive Concept | Inhabitat – Green Design Will Save the World

You see!?  Even the bees are going urban these days!  I thought this was really interesting/cool, although I am not exactly sure how sexy it is.  Unless of course you drizzle that honey all over you…but what a waste of fresh honey!

I am not sure if this is really practical, though.  I mean, how would you really get the honey out by pulling on the string?  Wouldn’t that somehow annoy the bees?  And do I really want to invite that potential “bee hive” of activity into my house (sorry, I just couldn’t resist!)?

What do you think?  Would you like to have this in your house?

“Philips’ just unveiled a new concept for an urban beehive that would allow anyone to become an amateur bee keeper – even those who live in apartments with no backyards. The pod-like hive attaches to a hole cut into a pane of glass. Once affixed, the glass covered pod on the inside of the window would allow you to peer into the hive while the white entryway on the outside would allow the bees the freedom come and go. Best of all, with the pull of a small cord you can have all of the fresh honey your heart desires.”
