Cows Are Being Put in VR Headsets to Produce Better Milk

Cows Are Being Put in VR Headsets to Produce Better Milk | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
“Experts noted reduced anxiety and improved overall emotional mood in the herd. Examples of dairy farms from different countries show that in a calm atmosphere, the quantity, and sometimes the quality, of milk increases markedly," the statement read. 

They also noted that local farms are already playing classical music to cows during the winter months to boost their spirits. That already "has a positive effect on milk flow.” 

Researchers will continue the experiment in a long-term study, and the developers are reportedly happy to expand the project to other farms if it proves successful.

Oh lordy, are the Russians meddling again? VR to make cows happy so they produce more milk? Jury is still out and until then, the question remains – is this story a bunch of bull?

wasn't that long ago someone invented a vacuum that patrols your home on it's own - sweeping up dust and other debris - and now a "junk collector" that scours up space debris at 20,000 kph!

wonder just want it can retrieve - maybe technology from other countries? maybe the laws of the sea will apply - finders keepers?
