Virtually Free Range Chickens
We're very excited to have our first virtual reality platform nearing completion. Next week we can start experiencing the terror of giving a speech in a packed auditorium via the Oculus Rift kit.
We believe virtual reality could play a major role in increasing access to therapy but like all new technologies it needs to be given some thought.
Austin Stewart an assistant professor at Iowa University has set up 'Second Livestock'. Take a look at the website before you read on.
Is he serious about this well yes and no. There's actually no plan to build it, yet. But think a bit about how intensively raised chickens live and compare it to high density human populations the similarities are there. Stewart is trying to make us think about technology and it's application. For some reason the chicken idea seems ridiculous but its harder to see this for the human world.
