Bird Buddy CEO talks new AI smart feeder that can identify 350 different bird species
CEO and co-founder Franci Zidar says the bird feeder’s module design will allow for continuous hardware and software upgrades.
Bird Buddy, the creator of a smart bird feeder that takes pictures of feathered friends visiting your yard, has announced a new gadget that can accurately identify hundreds of different species of hummingbirds, even while they are in flight.
Franci Zidar, the CEO and co-founder of Bird Buddy, told FOX Business at the Consumer Electronics Show 2023 (CES) that he and his friend came up with the idea for the smart feeder in a way familiar to many young, eager entrepreneurs – over several late-night conversations and a couple of beers.
Bird Buddy boasts a modular design, with a detachable white center that can be removed and inserted into other housings to activate additional features.
"We’re launching a hummingbird feeder that you can swap out, take your existing module, put it in there, and unlock a new species of birds," Zidar said.
