Cows Are Being Put in VR Headsets to Produce Better Milk

By

It's not just humans who are looking to escape the real world and enter a virtual one, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of the Moscow Region. A farm in Russia has teamed up with the government department to see if they can combat winter depression and boost milk output by putting VR headsets on cows. 

According to the BBC, the VR headsets have been adapted for the "structural features of cow heads" and the cows are being shown a "unique summer field simulation program" to help them stay happier throughout the harsh Russian winter.
