A New Use for Drones

We’ve all seen those commercials with drones. Whether it be for Amazon.com delivering packages or the bunches of them attacking and dive-bombing people as they come out of the office in the Audi A6 commercial.

Well, now there is Shep the Drone. Paul Brennan, a farmer in Carlow, Ireland tried out the technology with a drone to herd sheep from the air. You can see it here. Is this the end of the sheepdog? Probably not as drones (flying sheepdogs) cannot offer companionship. Also flying the drone requires a human to control it.
