Virtual Reality for Chickens
Would you eat the eggs of a hen lost in virtual reality?
On this River to River segment - a proposal by Austin Stewart of Iowa State University to give real, captive chickens a true virtual experience of roaming a free range.
“All the chickens in this world would have microphones so they can squawk at one another and socialize," says Stewart.
Spoiler alert: While Stewart admits that this is not a real business proposal, he is trying to provoke discussion on our lives as people living in "boxes" as well as communication on our livestock practices.
