NUS got slashdotted!

Since when is anything that comes out of NUS cool enough to be slashdotted?

My bro-in-law and me were surprised to see this article about feeling poultry remotely via the internet.

“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.

“We understand the perceived eccentricity of developing a system for humans to interact with poultry remotely, but this work has a much wider significance,” he added.

Just don’t use it for remote surgery yet. Imagine if you lose your network connection after you have just pried open the skull. Gross. At least I know our hospitals won’t be outshoring surgery to India or China anytime soon.
