Are you a pet lover? Do you prefer chickens as your pet? No me neiter… But if you did, what would you do if distance tears you apart from your dear chicken?

Now, you don’t have to worry.  You have the chance to pet your chicken even if you’re miles apart from him. With this innovation by National University of Singapore’s Mixed Reality Laboratory, a gateway is opened for chicken pet owners to get in touch with their pets.

The system allows people stroke their pet using a special doll. Interaction between the owner and his pet is realized through touching of the doll. This golden invention was motivated by lack of welfare and abundance of animal abuse.
