Default Using a chicken as a steadicam

This guy strapped a camera to a chickenís head. No really, thatís it. Thereís some interesting science behind it though. Heís taking advantage of the Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex in the chicken. It is basically the reflex that we use to keep our eyes firmly focused on something while our head is moving. In a chicken however, they move their entire head. This means that he can strap a camera to the chickenís head and have an instant steadicam. At least that is the theory.
