Anyone that has a pig knows how much they like to play, especially when they are babies. I “StumledUpon” a website today that I just had to write about. It’s times like this that I wish I would have gone the iPad route instead of the Android way, but I’m sure they will catch up.

Anyway, what I am raving about is the new iPhone app to play with pigs that is coming out.

The Playing with Pigs project is researching the complex relationship we have with domesticated pigs by designing a game. Designing new forms of human-pig interaction can create the opportunity for consumers and pigs to forge new relations as well as to experience the cognitive capabilities of

each other. The game is called Pig Chase.

For additional background, visit the Playing with Pigs project website: playingwithpigs.nl

At first site I’m thinking ” wow what a cool way to play with pigs when you’re away from your farm, or if you love them but can’t have them” but then reality hits and I start thinking ” Those poor pigs are trapped in that pen. I guess with modern technology, people are figuring out all kinds of things to do on their mobile devices these days.

The cool thing about this app though is is people are playing it then that means that the pigs are getting some kind of interaction with something other than their food bowls and water nipples.  Now if they can make it where it was more realistic, like rubbed their side and them flopping over for a belly rub, or just being able to pet them, I would guarantee that the app would be much more appealing. But I might have to try it out once they come out with something for Android. It definitely isn’t worth me running out and buying an iPad, yet.

About Brenda

I am the owner and operator of Mini Pig Farm as well as PigGear.
I no longer breed mini pigs, but I still have 4 of my own.
I started making pig harnesses in 2010 when I couldn't find a harness that fit right. PigGear was created when my mini pig customers needed a bigger size harness when their baby grew out of the one I provided to them.
