“Orangutans, it turns out, love the iPad and its games just as much as some humans do,” Brian Crecente reports for Kotaku.
“A budding program at the Milwaukee County Zoo is working to place iPads into the giant, gentle palms of their orangutans,” Crecente reports. “Two of the zoo’s orangutans already look forward to weekly sessions with an iPad. They even have favorite apps, shows and games, but they haven’t yet been given free rein with the Apple device because keepers worry they might get frustrated and simply snap one in half.”
Crecente reports, “The orangutans both have their favorite apps, often spending quite a bit of time finger-painting with DrawFree, watching television shows and even playing games. They’ve tried iFishPond, Flick Kick Football and seem to really love the interactive book The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore.”
