    If you have any chickens in the house, you're going to want to keep them away from the computer. Georgia Tech researchers have developed the device that will haunt their feathered dreams. The prototype Intelligent Cutting and Deboning System has a built-in 3D vision system in order to help it cut and debone a chicken. The robot uses collected data and custom algorithms to help reduce bone fragments and increase yield on birds, whilst ensuring that no fowl with ever get a full night's sleep again. The school has begun testing the system, as evidenced by the unfortunate bird picture above. Press release after the break, if you're not too chicken.

    The same headline could apply to any University's graduating class since....well since the dawn of Universities I guess.

    I worked on the debone line of a chicken plant...for a whole three days.

    Hopefully that machine will be a success and be mass produced to take over that job. It's not fit for humans. icon_lol.gif

    Odd as the machine may seem, it might be a way to get people out of a dangerous job and actually improve sanitation at the same time. Now what do we do to employ all those people who are so desperate for jobs that they work in chicken plants?

    I still won't be eating Chicken McNuggets, though.

    Asea-Brown-Boveri in the Manufacturing Research Center. am glad to see my alma mater is using ABB. Two fortunate companies, ABB and the business of my late partner the king of chicken.

    Anyways, the birds have already had their guts sucked out by this point after an electrocution.

    How long before these machines become sentient and begin deboning their human masters? My bones are scared.
