If you're looking for an excuse to get you to stop eating eggs or chicken from factory farms and start caring about where your food comes from, Animal Visuals has you covered.

Using computer graphics, Animal Visuals gives you a firsthand look into what it's like to be crammed into a chicken cage--with sound. Statistics about the egg industry are superimposed over the panoramic view, which you can adjust just as you would if you were viewing a virtual tour of, say, a hotel room.

The power of empathy is an incredibly strong one. I raised hens in my backyard growing up, and had to mute the sound after about five seconds.
