Flow hive will be buzzing on Australian story tonight

THE Flow Hive is a world-wide phenomenon and its local inventors will feature on tonight's episode of Australia Story on ABC.

The Channon-based inventors Cedar and Stuart Anderson stunned the world, and themselves, when they launched their revolutionary bee hive earlier this year.

The unique device allows honey to flow straight out of a bee hive saving hours of dangerous and dirty work required when using traditional bee hives.

Saving disruption

The invention of the device was also motivated by a desire to save the bees from massive disruption and harm.

The launch of the Flow Hive became a world-wide phenomenon when their crowd funding campaign broke international records by generating well over US$3 million in a matter of days.

Record-breaking crowd fund

In just six hours they had raised more than $1,660,000.

When the campaign started the duo was hoping to raise just $70,000.

 

"They had US$12.2 million worth of advance orders and a monumental task ahead of them," according to a preview of tonight's Australian Story.

"After a life tinkering quietly in a shed, Cedar and Stuart now face the challenge of running a multimillion dollar company. How will they cope?"

Tonight's edition will also look at the 10 years of development that went into creating the break-through technology.

The program airs tonight on ABC2 at 8.10pm
