This massive hive shows humans what it's like to be a bee

Artist Wolfgang Buttress designed this 17-metre artificial beehive based on bee research at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew.

The multi-sensory elements of the Hive respond to the real-time activity of bees at a nearby hive. There are vibrations as well as LED lights which glow and fade, depending on the bees activity.
