Counting them all out and counting them all back again ...

A student at University College Worcester (UK) has devised a bee counter using digital electronics. The device can count to the accuracy of one bee and distinguish whether they are entering or leaving the hive. The counter uses two light gates and bees have to cross both beams to register on a database.

Maybe the person who had to count Italy's bees this year will be delighted.
