South African designers Warren Lewis and (the somewhat extraordinarily named) Porky Hefer have come up with Birdwatcher, a bird house in the form of a CCTV camera that will feed the local birds and help you scare burglars away.

Birdwatcher "acts as a deterrent for uninvited visitors as it can be mounted outside, either on a tree or against the wall," they write, also serving as a place to rest for your avian friends. [Animal Farm]
