Former NASA Engineer Builds The Perfect Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder

Mike Rober is no rookie when it comes to viral tech-savvy experiments. The former NASA engineer has made a name for himself as a YouTuber who masterminds intricate projects. This time, he has built the perfect bird feeder in response to squirrels gobbling down his bird feed day after day. The first challenge is the bridge of instability, followed by the maze of a thousand corridors. If they make it through that, it brings them to the pitchfork tumblers. Next comes the “homewrecker,” and then the bridge of deception. If they’re still on the course, they have to now navigate the tourist trap. Next up are the quad steps of great elevation, and for the last challenge: the orbital assist platform…..otherwise known as the “squirrel-apult.” If the squirrel walks through the 8-part ninja warrior obstacle course, they're free to gorge on the walnuts right next to the birds.
