The idea is simple.
Using machine learning you can solve impossible problems if you have the data.
Then since bird feathers I assume would vibrate in the air. I wonder. What problems could the data collected from this vibration help solve.
One problem is finding food and avoiding danger.
So storing the vibration time plot in some compressed way. Then it might be possible to match that signal with an unknown new route to find food.
So this could be a birds additional 6:th type sense.
