Project Description

Pig Chase (2011)

In the Netherlands captive pigs have the legal right to be provided with a toy. However, in practice the toys provided are insufficient for adequate mental stimulation. “Pig Chase” is a tablet-computer based game that lets users play with captive pigs in an effort to provide pigs with more fitting mental stimulation.  Further goals are to design new forms of human-pig interaction, to study opportunities for new human-pig relations, and to let both species experience the cognitive capabilities of each other.
