Gorillas As Fascinated With iPhones As Humans Are [VIDEO]

    February 17, 2012

We here at WebProNews are not much different from the readers of our fair site because, like you, we love all things gadgety. Flash us a new hand-held device and we’re like Yogi Bear drifting toward a freshly set picnic. While the fascination with smartphones and tablets are fast becoming a standard component to the human condition, Mark Rober might have unexpectedly discovered that it’s not just a human thing.

During a casual trip to the zoo, Rober was using his iPhone to snap some photos of some gorillas when he noticed that they, orangutans, and other primates took a specific interest in his phone. They weren’t interested with the non-iPhoned humans, but his iPhone brought all the monkeys to the yard. Check out his video below, which includes the modified gorilla cam that he constructed in order to give the primates a good look at themselves on his iPhone.
