American monkeys taught to play computer games

    The ubiquity of the Internet has refuted the assertion that a million monkeys, if you put them on computers, will certainly print "War and Peace."

    Nevertheless, the real monkeys, standing on the evolutionary ladder closest to homo sapiens, were able to communicate with the computer. More precisely, with a specially designed game console. Two orangutans living in the Atlanta Zoo can interact with the touchpad by poking fingers into it and touching their lips. The process of learning can be observed by all visitors to the zoo on the screen set for these purposes.

    Games are similar to those offered to children - you need to compare similar pictures or compare the image of the animal with sound (mooing, growling, grunting). Another game helps orangutans develop their drawing skills.
