Stroke a chicken over the internet

Scientists have developed a system which enables people to stroke a chicken over the internet.

It's seen as the first step to virtual physical interaction, reports Wired News.

The Touchy Internet system was created by researchers at the National University of Singapore.

Users touch a chicken-shaped doll which duplicates the actions of a real chicken through a webcam link.

Touch sensors on the doll send 'tactile information' over the internet to a second computer near the chicken.

This computer triggers tiny vibration motors in a lightweight jacket worn by the chicken, meaning the chicken feels the user's touch in the exact same place as the doll was stroked.

"This is the first human-poultry interaction system ever developed," said Professor Adrian David Cheok

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

I wonder how long it will take them to figure out other applications of this technology.
