If the idea of Rent-A-Hive were to continue there would have to be decisions made on what would be manufactured and what would be purchased and adapted. I could see it entirely possible that none of the components are actually manufactured by Rent-A-Hive but all purchased and the money is made through pollination services. During questions, after our presentation, the idea of data and its value was discussed as well. I think this is a great area to pursue as well because this data may be of more worth than the pollination services.
I think several of the ideations produced by other groups were very well done as well. I really enjoyed the idea of a family build your own bee house. I think this idea has a lot of possibility and could be found in the real world as a reasonable product. Another idea that left me in awe was the museum exhibit. I thought this was a brilliant idea that perfectly incorporated arts based research. It was pertinent that a lot of work had been done in the background to create the arts based research presentation.
