Andreas Greiner Flygate

A Machine To Discharge Flies

glass, smell trap, mechanic gate, engine

The prototype of the Flygate consists of a glass case with a manipulated window. With the help of a smell attractor, the fly is led to the black gate and stays near to the exit. If the gate opens, flies can easily get out of the case without being harmed. The flygate is a simple and pragmatic, yet aesthetic and elegant technical solution to peacefully channel flies out of a room without killing them.
