Robot Sheep Shearing

9 05 2009

When robots wins the war, nature finally awakes for a revenge or both, it’ll be US strapped on a machine that looks like a torture device to work as batteries or something…

Meanwhile, watch a video of a sheep being sheared by a robot. 😛
Hope you’re not from some animal rights organization/ labor union though, don’t wanna ruin your day.
The strange part that hits me is that usually, a (human) sheep shearer does the work way faster than that.
Another interesting part is that on the video description, the machine is said to make less errors than humans when it comes to cutting up the sheep by mistake.
So maybe, if the process was faster, this is a better alternative for those worried about the sheep’s feelings. Not for the labor union though. 😛

Wonder which the sheep would prefer to be sheared by a human in 2 minutes and be nicked a couple of times, or to be strapped to that thing for 5 minutes.

I’m guessing none of the above. xD
