Modla is very proud to be associated with Naturebytes, a start-up project of which Modla founder, Jon Fidler is a director.
Naturebytes is a growing community of makers, engineers, scientists, schools and individuals, all transforming digital making for wildlife. It provides unique maker kits and educational courses for people of all ages, to develop skills in computer programming, design, technology and natural sciences, to enable everyone to connect with wildlife in new and exciting ways.
Jon is in charge of product development, using 3D printing and digital 3D design to create the camera trap case, which can be bought as part of a maker kit. As the world gains further access to 3D printers, the maker kits can then be produced at home or in schools on desktop 3D printers.
Supported by NESTA and the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the Naturebytes Wildlife Cam Kit contains all of the parts and instructions needed for people, young and old, to start photographing wildlife. The Wildlife Cam takes stealthy snaps of any animals that wonder into its view, giving a unique insight into the secret lives of all the animals in your garden.
You’ll be able to share your photographs and check out what’s been spotted by other Naturebytes Wildlife Cams in the community when the kit is launch later this year.
