Health experts agree that honey makes a better natural sweetener compared to sugar, but the availability of honey has been scarce lately as concerns about dwindling honeybee population become alarming. Philips tries to answer the problem by making every home breed its own indoor beehive.

The “urban beehive” is the latest from Philip’s “microbial home” concept. The system is part flower pot and part bee hive. Live bees actually live in it, traveling from one flower to another for pollination and produce honey in the honeycomb house. Honey can be “tapped” from the hive’s base, which also comes with a smoking system to keep the bees calm before opening the hive.

The concept sounds lovely, but I do think we still would have to wear beekeeper suits in the process.
