Do It Yourself Steadicam Using a Chicken

Last week we shared the awesome fact that chickens have image stabilized heads. If you’ve been wondering about it, it’s actually called the vestibulo-ocular reflex. Naturally (and… nerdily?) people started suggesting that someone should try making a steadicam using a chicken. Well, YouTube user Destin actually went ahead and did it… The results can be seen in the video above.

    This is perhaps the weirdest thing I have ever seen someone do in the name of photography.

    Awesome demonstration of animal physiology. You should post it on instructables.com.
