Raspberry Pis used to track bees at Kew Gardens

This one is guaranteed to get my buzzing phobia going!

A Newcastle-based engineer has developed a system to track the flight paths and behaviour of bees at London’s Kew Gardens. A pack consisting of a tiny RFID tag and an aerial is glued to the back of each individual bee and the tags are then read by multiple¬†Pis which are dotted around the hive and flower patch. You can read more about it on the BBC’s website.
