It’s true. Apes are using iPads, and word is that they could end up video calling one another between different zoos.
Oops. I mean:
These come from a project at the Milwaukee Zoo. According to a BBC interview with conservationist Richard Zimmerman, the orangutans could soon be video-calling their friends at other zoos.
At RedApes.org, where the videos were embedded, there is also a photo gallery o “Long-time Orangutan Outreach friend and supporter Scott Engel doing his part to make the Planet of the Apes a reality...”
I happened to stumble across this one on YouTube as well:
At RedApes.org, they’re currently accepting donations for the iPad project. They’ll take your “gently used” iPads. Something to consider for all you iPad owners planning on getting the iPad 3 when it comes out.
It probably wouldn’t hurt to get on the apes’ good side now while there’s still a chance.
