Too Much Time on Their Hands

So the guys at the National University of Singapore have developed a system for remotely petting a chicken. You know, for when your chicken is in a toxic environment or you're just too lazy to walk out to the coop and pet her in person.

"This is the first human-poultry interaction system ever developed," said professor Adrian David Cheok, the leader of the team, who has been developing the technology for nearly two years.

I can just see the team, sitting around the lab, wondering why it is that nobody else ever thought to develop a "human-poultry interaction system."
