When squirrels kept digging up this guy’s balcony garden, he developed a machine that would keep them away.

 

"The squirrels kept coming around and digging up my garden when I was at work and really pissed off my indoor cat who watched helplessly through the window while these fuzzy terrorists boko haram'd my plants. I tried home remedies, store bought repellents but nothing worked. So I built my own Night's Watch. Its built from an old IP camera I had laying around. The camera has an ALARM I/O action ports that I wired an electric squirt gun to. Then I enabled motion detection on the camera to fire the squirt gun on detection. The spinning props are there because why the hell not and they're solar. Nothing say's F U to a squirrel like an owl pissing on it as it takes pictures for internet points. - That's going to be my slogan on the box when Williams-Sonoma begs me to sell this in their store."

"I tried attaching a PIR sensor to the ALARM input on the camera block but couldn't get it to work. I tried all the "normally open" and "normally close" but never go it to work. I just gave up and now it uses the camera's digital motion detection. not as great as PIR but it works OK"

"camera is mounted to the neck and I've added 3V - 6V motors for the wings."

"I got this owl from the depot for 10% off because of the missing eye. I plan to add a Terminator red eye soon."

"DC motor all glued in. I left an opening underneath for the motor vents."

"Nerf squirt gun i got from amazon for $12 all torn down and glued into the owl."

"I probably should have just gotten a windshield fluid squirt-er. But if I did, then my owl wouldn't have such a sweet orange dick to piss on all the squirrels with."

"urethra tube to the water reservoir"

"5 gallon owl bladder"

"finishing up on the back. I forgot to take photos of the back."

"view from the camera on my phone."

But does it work?
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.
