Crows Use Vending Machines Answered

Check out this guy who's training crows to use vending machines.

Crows are smart, and very good at cause and effect. They're already known for dropping nuts at intersections so cars will do the hard work of cracking them open; it's a small step from this to world domination.

There's a rather wobbly video of the crows going nuts for his machine while the seagulls waddle about ignoring it.

Via Mark's liveblogging of TED talks on BoingBoing.


Hmm my real worry is who the hell notices these things... That's pretty good, soon hobos will be out of business as crows get jobs shifting cans for peanuts, also the change one would be an interesting way to make money, until the crows figured out how to hack vending machines...

Yeah, now we will find less change "under the machines" when we are short of it LOL

No I think they'll make the connection between drinking and people dropping change, bars will stalked by birds, they wont sleep on friday and saturday nights.

great another thing i have to fear... super crows picking my pockets.

They will rule us all! World domination! *muahaha* I love crows and ravens.
