They have not shared the real design and prototype of the kit yet, but there is some detail for everyone. 

According to the local media persons of Russia, the virtual reality kit has wrap-around glasses that are suitable for a cow’s anatomical structure. The scientists have developed this device, especially for cows, because they can process red better than blues and greens.

A farm located in northwest Moscow begun to testify the prototypes on cows and found positive results. The fam’s cows became calmer and had improved mood. The researchers of the farm are monitoring the prototype’s effect on overall milk production.

Some farms in the country are also playing calming classical music by installing audio equipment in the kit.
