Our friends at Flyver regularly share drone applications that they have come across and find interesting. Here is a great installment.
1. Cow Art
If we still had the creative category, this would have fit right in there. Surprisingly, or rather unsurprisingly, no one up to this point has used cows to draw images that are visible from the air. Until now. Derek Klingenberg uses a truck full of feed , a large herd of cows and a drone to make what he calls #CowArt. The way eh does it is pretty simple, he just drops feed in certain locations that form some sort of shape and then uses the truck to guide the cows to those locations. The end result is a smile, comprised of quite a few cows, visible from the sky.
2. ‘Star Wars’ Snow Speeder
Olivier C does it again. Week after week we see him create these amazing Star Wars replica drones, and he fails to disappoint us with his snow speeder. The prolific replica maker seems to have looked through everything including the little details like the rebel Alliance Starbird insignia. The result not only looks like the real, well fictional really, thing, but he also manages ot make it move like the snow speeder, as we see from the video.

4. Planting a Billion Trees Per Year
The world’s supply of tree is decreasing rapidly and we are hardly able to keep up with it. Despite repopulaiton efforts, the number of trees in the world decreases by an estimated 11 billion per year. A drone startup named BioCarbon Engineering is aiming to significantly influence that statistic by targeting the immodest goal of planting one billion trees per year.
5. Herd and Land Monitoring
Australian pastoralists have adopted using drones to monitor their large estates more efficiently. The normal method of sending people on foot requires far more resources and much more time, which is why the drone is a perfectly natural fit here.
