We all crave a freshly tapped glass of milk every now and then. That’s why designers Anastasia Eggers and Ottonie von Roeder came up with Cow On Tour, a winning concept to tap your own milk from a cow around the corner. The cow in question carries a milk machine on its back, which is driven by methane gasses from its own farts, turning the animal into a walking vending machine for milk.
According to the designers’ website: “Cow on Tour transforms the cow into a self-sufficient machine for milk production. Methane gas collected from a cow is used as a fuel to power the milking machine. The system allows the animals to move independently in green spaces of a city and provides an online service that makes it possible for the user to easily locate a cow of their choice and collect milk from her. Cow on Tour brings the milk back to the people”.Cow On Tour is one of the finalists of the Post-Fossil City Contest. The designers will receive €1,000 to further work on the project with the support of the Urban Futures Studio‘s curatorial team.
