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.

Tap fresh milk from your neighbor's cowAccording 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".Tap fresh milk from your neighbor's cowCow 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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
