Apes Using iPads To Communicate With One Another

It’s true. Apes are using iPads, and word is that they could end up video calling one another between different zoos.

Just look:

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.
