Indiegogo’s new crowdfunding record: $5.3M and counting for a smart beekeeping system

Less than a week after Kickstarter saw the new Pebble smartwatch smash its previous funding record to smithereens, fellow crowdfunding platform Indiegogo has an all-new record to boast about too.
With $5.3 million in the coffers so far and 27 days still remaining, the Flow Hive campaign has now passed the previous record-holder — Hour of Code— which had received some big-name donations from the likes of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg to help increase uptake of computer science in schools.
Flow Hive is being developed by an Australia-based father-and-son team to help revolutionize beehives — it lets beekeepers harvest honey without having to open the hive and pester the bees. You can see it in action for yourself here:
