I wanted to make something funny but useful as my project in our prototype course; so it came up with the idea of a "garden protector."
The basic idea is to keep all the birds and animals (and people) away from your harvest. When the garden protector detects these unauthorized persons it starts to flap it's mighty wings, sounds a fierce voice and it's large eyes will blink red. If this is not enough to shoo the intruders away I am not sure what is!
