Gorilla Game Lab: Designing tangible and digital games to enhance the well-being of zoo-housed gorillas.
Evening lecture and panel discussion.
“Gorilla Game Lab applies innovative game technology to animal welfare science. We have developed an interactive cognitive challenge (‘game’) for gorillas which builds on cutting-edge human-animal interaction technologies and participatory design methods”
-Dr Peter Bennett, principal investigator
During this event team members will discuss the inspiration for the project and its roots in animal welfare; the gorilla-centred design process and initial trials with the Western lowland gorilla troop at Bristol Zoo Gardens. There will also be a chance to test out the Gorilla Game Lab prototypes and to chat with the team.
