There was an item on BBC Breakfast this morning about an Irish farmer using drones to herd sheep which I though must be an April Fool but it seems it was reported back in June last year although that was in New Zealand.

If this was real I'd be tempted to buy it. In fact I did try even though I knew it was an April Fool and got a nice surprise  Smiley
