Happy Year of the Tiger!

The 1st of February marked the start of Chinese New Year/Lunar New Year celebrations, so we here at the Zooniverse team wanted to wish everyone a happy and prosperous Year of the Tiger!

This year, we’d like to share a fun side project one of our developers (Shaun) created for the Chinese New Year: a small video game where you try to lead a big striped cat to an exit with a laser pointer. While the Zooniverse team takes our scientific work very seriously, we also enjoy doing some really goofy stuff in our free time.

Chinese New Year 2022 - Year of the Tiger greeting card. A man, in a Chinese New Year outfit, is distracting a tiger with a laser pointer. A woman, in the back, attempts to save some vases from being broken. Links to the CNY game-card at https://shaunanoordin.com/cny2022/
Disclaimer: please don’t try to actually play laser tag with real life tigers. 🐅
