Crows are smart. Research has shown that crows can learn to use tools. They have adapted themselves to live with human civilization. Crows communicate with their peers and sometimes they teach each others.

Crow’s vending machine is a device that invite crows to help improve our city. By throwing little objects such as rock or waste into the container, a crow can receive a meat stick as reward.

The assembly of the collected item reveals the look of the neighborhood.

烏鴉們十分聰明,許多研究都發現他們知道如何使用工具。 已經學會在人類的社會中如何生存的烏鴉,據說主要棲息地都在有人類居住的五公里之內。 烏鴉彼此會用叫聲溝通,並會互相教學。

烏鴉販賣機是讓烏鴉也能為社會貢獻的儀器。 透過將路上的石子或是垃圾丟入販賣機桶,烏鴉會得到一根肉條做為獎賞。 販賣機桶所蒐集的物件則可以做為這個區域的表現。
