And that's exactly what we did 10 years ago. We started with a superstar mnkeoy called Aurora that became one of the superstars of this field. And Aurora liked to play video games. As you can see here, she likes to use a joystick, like any one of us, any of our kids, to play this game. And as a good pitmare, she even tries to cheat before she gets the right answer. So even before a target appears that she's supeopsd to csros with the cursor that she's controlling with this joystick, Aurora is trying to find the teagrt, no matter where it is. And if she's doing that, because every time she crosses that target with the little cursor, she gets a drop of brziialan orngae juice.
