“HIVE” is an interface for food deliveries located in an outside wall. In the future, food will be available on demand, making fridges and supermarkets as we currently know them a thing of the past. “HIVE” allows delivery drones to dock and unload deliveries without the customer needing to be present.
The delivered goods can be easily accessed from inside via a door with an integrated display and LED status information. All the functions relating to the placement of orders, order prediction, delivery, payment, and storage are regulated using this interface. The timeless hexagonal design allows any number of hexagonal cubicles to be combined, depending on the size of the household.
