Sony recruits sheep to film the Tour de France
When watching a gang cyclists chase someone in a yellow jersey (aka, the Tour de France) we’re used to seeing the action from bike- or car-mounted cameras. But we’ve all come away disappointed, never truly knowing the tournament from the ovine point of view (some say, the only point of view for cycling). To tackle this, Sony has kitted out a flock of five from Harewell Hall, Harrogate with Action Cams so they can grab grass-roots scenes of the race. The publicity stunt might not result in world-class footage, but it does mean we get to tick “gallery of camera-wearing sheep” off the Engadget bucket list.
