Daffodish

Satellite television dishes reshaped as flower petals

TV satellite dishes used be ugly, but not any more with the introduction of the Daffodish.

The Daffodish is a range of satellite dishes that have been remodelled in the shape and colour of some well known flowers. The centre of the dish continues to function normally, but is now embellished with the folds of a brightly coloured petal.

Where rows of drab grey dishes once festooning the eves and walls of dreary terraces, magical sunflowers, giant roses, and fuchsias will now point skyward.

Not quite the same idea but using real flowers [NotTheSharpestSpoon, May 02 2006]

There is one of these cellphone tower "trees" on the way to Boston http://www.utilitycamo.com/sites.html
at least it's attempt to hide the ugliness [xandram, May 02 2006]

       I'd love to see the fence surrounding the dishes shaped like a cute scaled-down white picket fence. Especially if its on top of a really tall, ugly building. [+]

       [+] Girders and metal structures could be made to look like muscle or sinew, telegraph poles and electrocity pylons like trees ..

       The sunflower version could have tracking capabilities.   

       [xandram], there are quite a number of the palm tree cell towers here. Some are so good that you don't notice that they're cell towers unless you can get up close to them.

       [half] I don't know where your {here} is, but it would be way cool to put the Palm tree ones here in New England!! (Instead of the Pine Tree ones)
