Sheep to be turned into WiFi hotspots in rural areas – WiFi Enabled Sheep

The countryside might have beautiful views and fresh air, but the lack of good WiFi makes it nearly impossible to check Facebook and post pictures of #thegreatoutdoors to Instagram.

However this one flaw in the rural Britain could soon be a thing of the past as a university team are planning on turning sheep into mobile WiFi hotspots.

(Note: This is not an early and elaborate April fools joke)

Professor Gordon Blair and his team from Lancaster University are trialling a project in which they hope to pioneer the ‘Internet of Things’ (or IOT) project.

They plan to fit sheep with collars to track their movements, and add sensors to river banks to measure erosion.

Not only do they hope this will provide invaluable information about the countryside, but they even say one day these electrical devices could be used as WiFi spots.

‘The possibilities are limitless,’ said Prof Blair.

‘Cities have been the focus of much of the boom in this type of technology – it has been used to keep traffic flowing on our roads, monitor air pollution and even help us find a parking spot.

‘But the countryside faces challenges of its own, from subtle environmental changes to catastrophic events such as flooding.’

The collars worn by the sheep will be able to transmit data as far as 5km, making them perfect emergency WiFi hotspots for lost ramblers.

And before you say it – yes, we called up Lancaster University to confirm that this isn’t one big joke.
