Wageningen University to investigate computer game for pigs

17-06-2010 | |

Researchers from Wageningen University in the Netherlands are asking farmers to join a brainstorm about the possibilities to create a computer game for pigs.

The researchers think that a computer game could be a tool to increase the welfare among the animals. Creator of the idea -Clemens Driessen – addresses that the project is still in a very early stage. A pig tool is part of the project – the PhD project of Driessen.
A computer game could prevent boredom in pigs, but Driessen cannot tell yet how a pig should operate such a computer game.
