AirVūz News: World of Drones 12/28/20

Published 12/28/2020 08:03

Hello and welcome to the ‘World of Drones.’ 

Did you just get a drone for the holidays? Wondering what to do with it now? The New York City Drone Film Festival master classes are still available. Get access to over 30 drone and filmmaking focused classes from leaders in the UAV industry. Right now you can get 50% off with the promo code VIPVUZ. 

Two Israeli cowboys created a drone that herds cattle and camels. Noam Azran and his partner, Dvir Cohen, created this technology to save time and manpower in the ranching business. Their company BeeFree Agro is developing an autonomous drone named “Joe” which they are dubbing the “World’s first ‘click and herd’ solution.” Joe’s main focus will be to herd cattle by having them respond to the movement of the drone. The goal is to move the animals with the least amount of stress possible.  Now, instead of needing 2 or 3 ranch hands, they only need 2 and instead of 18 hour days they work 10 hour days.

Now it’s time to announce the Top 5 drone videos uploaded to AirVuz.com last week:
