They Can Probably Do More with One Than I Could

The Sun |News: "A GORILLA prods the new toy which scientists hope will transform the way primates are kept alert and happy in zoos - an iPad.

Animal behaviour experts handed out the gadgets to five apes in an experiment.

The super-smart gorillas quickly learned to turn the screens on and off and seem fascinated by the colours and pictures."

Great photo at the link.

/Was also taken in by NPR's story about eye surgery to make it possible to watch 3-D without glasses.
