ANIMAL Computer Interaction

As designers, we create solutions which are focused on people's needs.

But does design always have to be human-centric? What if we focus on a dog, a cat, or even...hmm a cow?

We cordially invite you to come to this meetup and join the talk about designing technologies for animals. During the presentations (which will be held in Polish), you will learn about Animal-Computer Interaction. A few interesting case studies are meant not to bore you with too much theory, e.g. the project of an interspecies tablet-based game. One thing is certain, a lot will be said about animals and their needs!

The icing on this cake will include a presentation of our VR application "Like a dog". We have created a tool, which helps you enter the head of a user, one which is not human.

We welcome designers, researchers, behaviourists, dog trainers, cat and dog owners and anyone interested to attend.

Speakers:
