Do you live in the country? Learn how sheep could speed up your Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi sheep idea could solve a couple problems for people in rural communities. First off, the sheep would be fitted with digital collars that would track where they go. This could help farmers keep track of their flocks. But, that's not all.

The collars could also double as Wi-Fi hotspots to boost shoddy Internet service in the area. In rural communities with lots of sheep, that could have a significant effect. Other proposed projects include adding sensors to riverbanks and utilizing rainfall monitors.

This isn't the first time that sheep have been used in ingenious ways in the U.K. During this year's Tour de France, some sheep were fitted with cameras to record the event as it passed through Yorkshire.
