It looks like orangutans are just as fascinated with iPads as the rest of the primate world (humans included).
A New York based not-for-profit called "Orangutan Outreach" has begun a program called called "Apps for Apes" in twelve zoos across North America. They are letting the orangutans play with (but not use on their own) donated iPads.
Like other highly intelligent creatures, orangutans can get bored or depressed without mental stimulation. The iPads, or more specifically, the apps on them, help keep them entertained. Apparently, apps created for children are popular and the apes are said to be fond of nature documentaries by David Attenborough. Insert your own joke here.
