The goal of this project is to create a device that will autonomously train crows. Initially we're training them to deposit dropped coins they find on the ground in exchange for peanuts, but eventually we hope to be able to train them to search and rescue, or to collect garbage, or who knows!

retreiving small change is small potatoes, I just imagined a scene from a Hitchcock-esk robbery of soda pop machine refiller man.


But anyways, train these birds to exchange i-pods for a penunts. I bet they could lift the new ones.
