Sometimes, you just need to squeeze a chicken. There’s no way around it, you just do. It’s a sad fact that most of us don’t have immediate access to chickens, which is not only frustrating to the human (the squeezer), but also upsetting for the chicken (the squeezee), since chickens, I guess, really really like to be squozen. The Mixed Reality Lab at the National University of Singapore has tackled this problem and developed a system that uses a chicken doll and a chicken jacket to let chicken owners interact with their
dinner pets over the internet. Check it out:
This is a lot like the the hug shirt we covered last year (STILL not available, btw)… Just for, you know, chickens. Good times.
