Virtual Reality Headset for Chickens

Expanding the Society of Simulations to the animal kingdom. A virtual reality headset could give chickens the freedom to roam without the roaming, making them believe they are free-range, even if they are not.

Austin Stewart, assistant professor in design at Iowa State University, has released ideas for a project named Second Livestock. It is a social experiment aimed to push us into discussing about animal welfare, and to see how many people would actually believe this could be a feasible solution.

Virtual reality displays have a lot of potential for changing human interaction, but what about animals? Can we use this technology to improve the life of chickens?
