Virtual reality for chickens is the future of farming

Virtual reality for chickens is the future of farming | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Humans, despite our undoubted success, splendor, and total domination of this fair planet, have one major downfall: We're incredibly self-centered. Whenever we discover something new, the first question is always how can it help us. Nearly all scientific endeavor is carried out with humanity's continued success and well-being in mind. This isn't to say that we don't care about our environment, or the other animals that are unfortunate enough to share our planet, but it's nearly always an afterthought. First we try to solve the problem -- hunger, pestilence, death -- and then we worry about how it might impact our botanical and zoological friends.
