According to a new study, pigs can play video games with a clear understanding of the game’s concept. Published in Frontiers in Psychology, the study displayed an experiment in which pigs had to control a cursor on screen using a joystick and get the cursor to collide with a figure on the screen. The study found that pigs could learn how to use the joystick and the concept that the joystick can manipulate the objects on the screen. The study concluded that the pigs were able to accomplish the task at a high rate.
