North Korea is often ridiculed for being something of a backward nation (its worrying nuclear ambitions aside, of course).
But when it comes to farming, they deserve some credit for trying to adopt 'new' technologies - at least in their terms.

Complete with 15-inch computer monitor (ok, so it's not a flatscreen) and full QWERTY keyboard, it gives the student a state-of-the-art way to hone his or her ploughing prowess - and there's no risk of costly accidents.

The facility was built for children to take part in after-school programs in the arts, sciences, sports, computer and vocational training.
