Looks... easy. Is it easy, to have bees? You know, one or five hives in the far end of my garden?

I was thinking this was Onion News at first. What I don't get is how the developing bee brood escape being killed when the handle is turned to let the honey flow. Shifting the combs to release the hotney will squash the young growing in the spaces that are not full of honey.

#2 I think that the shifting panel is on the furthest point of the hive (furthest away from the bees) look at 2:19, there you can see the shifting panels, which I belive are the thick lines at 2:23 between each pair of cells (left and right; the angle of each cell is directed downwards toward a fawcet of sorts), thus the younglings wont get squashed. So only the last 2 mm of the cell is shifting and not the whole container.
Imagine a 1 km railtrack and only the last 5 m gets redirected, so no matter where the train is, it gets to where it was supposed to go. But don't take my word for granted, that's just how I would do it.

Bees are amazing, perfectly made... You know honey doesn't spoil?

I just blew my own mind.

These guys had a fund raiser/order campaign on indigogo and raised just under $13,000,000 in 45 days.

A lot of questions come to my mind, what happens if your replace the natural wax coating of the honey with plastic.

#3 After a little research on the pros and cons of this device I discovered that it is a fact that any bee larva or eggs laid in these plastic cells are killed when the handle is turned to release the honey.The device is profit driven and not beneficial to the well-being of the hive.

From their website:
"Occasionally we have found that a queen will lay a few drone (male bee) eggs in a flow frame. This doesn't stop the flow frame from working, but does kill any drone eggs or larvae in the cells when an extraction takes place.
It is up to you if you want to use a queen excluder or just strain the jar of honey if you see drone eggs or larvae in your honey."

Here is a very interesting critique of the flow-hive system...
