Poleno

Poleno is a silent drone that helps the process of rebuilding damaged ecosystems by stimulating pollination.

Mimicking the form and purpose of a flower, the device attracts insects thanks to its bright colour and built-in light. Insects then pass through the perforated walls of the device, picking up the pollen particles within and dispersing them throughout the local area. After a set period of time the drone travels to another sector, taking some of the pollinating insects with it and helping spread different types of pollen further afield.
