Orangutans Are Using iPads, So Koko and Her Sign Language Can Piss Off SHARE: Tweet Remember how everyone was losing it in the ’90s over the fact that Koko the gorilla could communicate using sign language? Now, she’s 41 and behind the times, because there’s an app for that. Thanks to the Apps for Apes program, orangutans at the National Zoo have been given iPads to play with while most of us are still trying to contend with cracked screens on our outdated iPhone 4s. Forget sign language, these beasts are communicating using Emojis and carrying out their mating rituals by sexting each other over SnapChat. Follow Us On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t introduce them to this type of technology. Has no one seen any of the Planet of The Apes movies?! They’ll take to Twitter just like in the Arab spring and organize a massive revolution, or at the very least fling their poop emojis at us.
