Former NASA engineer builds ‘Ninja Warrior’ kit to combat poaching squirrels

Mark Rober, a former NASA engineer and now an Apple engineer, recently discovered a problem — squirrels have been eating food he prepares for birds,media reported. So how to solve this problem? The answer is simple: a set of “ninja warrior” gear that prevents squirrels from eating food.

After testing several “squirrel-proof” bird feeders, Rober found that they failed when faced with clever, budding rodents.

But that didn’t stop Rober. To create a bird feeder that can play a real role as a squirrel-proof, the engineer seems to be “getting into the magic” – mazes, rope bridges, slingshots… It can be said that he can think of, can use the equipment has been added to this feeding system. It is understood that if the squirrels successfully complete this series of challenges they can eat a large pile of walnuts without restriction.

Incredibly, the squirrel eventually found a way to crack it, forcing Rober to make multiple adjustments to the device in the video, so don’t believe it.
