Google Sheep View

There is a piece of the world that has not been mapped by Google’s all-seeing eye, and that’s a shame according to Visit Faroe Islands, the tourist agency of the “sheep islands” that launched a petition to get Google there.

As part of Denmark, the 18 tiny islands in the north Atlantic between Scotland and Iceland are invisible to the maps of Google Street View, so they invented their own Street View technology. Introducing, Sheep View 360.

Pigeons Are Monitoring Air Quality

Our peculiar image of the week shows a Pigeon Air Patrol that monitors air quality. In March ten pigeons have been released in London, each of them equipped with a tiny backpack.

3D-Printed Shell to Save Tortoise’s Life

It is widely known that 3D printing is a revolutionary technology. Several surgeons and medical students are using it to improve the learning process and to advance medical science, forging new frontiers in the field. Of course bio-printing will be the next step, but until it becomes widely adopted, 3D can still save lives. We are familiar with several interventions where this technology helped save human lives, such as the 3D printed face and skull, but in this case we’re talking about saving defenseless, animal lives.

Drones in Agriculture

It seems drones are everywhere these days. They became known as a way for unmanned aircraft to carry out military surveillance and attacks, and now hobbyists use them to take stunning photos and videos from the sky. Amazon has even tinkered with the idea of using drones for home delivery. As is the case with most new forms of technology, more and more uses for drones will become available over time. Here’s a look at how drones can and will impact the agriculture and farming industry.
