For almost a year a zoo in the U.S. runs a program that gives orangutans access to technology, specifically the Apple iPad tablet. So far orangutans proved to be extremely responsive and have learned how to “button” the Tablet.

In this section, Apple would have to list all applications made ??for orangutans, so zoos in other parts of the globe to test the primate’s intelligence.
Moreover it seems that inside the orangutan cages will be installed hotspots that will allow them to make video calls and use applications that require internet connection, so the whole project is quite well done. Some think that these tablets would have been more useful in the hands of a children who would not have the opportunity to buy such a device, but one can never know what interesting discoveries could come out of a project like this one over time.
