Now you can experience Færøyene or (Føryoar, Faroe Islands) thru Sheep View 360. This gadget allows you to visit a place on earth, where sheeps number is higher than for the humans. The island sits in the middle between Norway, Iceland and Scottland (United Kingdom). It’s capital is Torshavn and the ocean surrounding Færøyene is the Norwegian sea. These islands were once a part of Norway, like Orkney Islands and Shettland Islands that belongs to Scottland today.
These tiny islands of only around 49188 people, got more than 80000 sheeps on the island! These flully animals just needs to be seen, someone thinks. And this is what Durita did. The landscape on Faroe Islands is breathtaking, so this was a very smart thing to do for sure. Now its time for you to make a visit?
On Engadget, they write about Durita’s 360-degree cameras that got solar panels for getting energy from the sun. They are strapped to the animals, without harming them and is only used for sending pictures with GPS coordinates back to her and then she uploads them onto the Google Street View. The sheeps cant film everything, so she insists thru the article that Google should come and visit the remote islands.

The Faroe Islands have some of the most beautiful roads in the world. It is impossible to describe what it feels like driving through the green valleys and up the mountains, or alongside the ocean, surrounded by steep drops and tall cliffs. It’s an experience like no other.
But there is a problem. Unlike almost all other parts of Europe, we don’t exist on Google Street View. The Faroe Islands may be rugged and remote but this collection of 18 islands in the North Atlantic also provide some of the world’s most magical landscapes and it is time that this hidden Nordic nation is revealed to the world.
Taking matters into my own hands, I decided to create my own version of Street View – Sheep View 360.
I gently placed a 360˚ camera, powered by a solar panel, on the back of a sheep that would take photographs as the animal freely grazed the open hillsides of the Faroe Islands. Photos are then transmitted back to my mobile phone so that I can upload them to Google Street View myself, finally putting the Faroes on the map in a very unique way!
But now I need your help. My sheep are great for capturing the tracks and trails of the Faroe Islands, but in order to cover the big sweeping Faroese roads and the whole of the breath-taking landscapes, we need Google to come and map them. – Visit Faroe Islands
Durita is now looking for Google that can help her with putting the Faroe Islands on Google Map Street View. Can she make it? We hope so, so lets try helping her out. Distrita ain’t so big, but we try to bring this news item to everyone visiting us.
