    I found this interesting. Apparently Japan has figured it out! *edit* that video got taken down so posted new link to another video.

    *edit #2* If this video gets taken down just search youtube "japanese students hatch egg without shell"

    I think they did it for science class in school to show the students how a chicken forms. The way they are doing it they can show progression by being able to have a clear view from inside the cup. This way the chicken lives? Also it could be helpful in the future. You never know when you may have so many eggs left of a breed and X amount are cracked. I think its pretty awesome they could potentially hatch them all including the cracked ones.
