The Washington Zoo Monkeys utilize the iPad [Video]

The Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington is using a series of iPad as a tool for interaction oriented cognitive development of monkeys at the zoo.

The monkeys at the zoo in Washington also like the iPad

In collaboration with 12 zoos around the world, the Smithsonian National Zoological Park participates in the "Apps for Apes", a program that use the interactive features of the iPad to deliver a new experience to monkeys in captivity. The zoo has 10 applications designed specifically for interaction with the monkeys, as some music programs and design, as well as others that are normally present in the App Store. As you can see in the video below, Iris (an orangutan whose name spelled backwards is reminiscent of something ...) seems to be more interested in interacting with the Apple tablet (especially Koi Pond application).

With this experiment, the zoo comes to finding ways to improve critical thinking and creativity of the Apes. Indeed, primates are only used initially showing interest in the iPad, while others continue their "life" in the zoo unmolested with electronics. Planet of the Apes is coming.
