The BonoboHope Great Ape Trust Sanctuary has posted a project on KickStarter to develop a chat app for their great Apes to communicate more efficiently with humans. The bonobos already know a visual lexigram of about 300 words. Right now they use a large touch screen keyboard. The Bonobo Chat project will give the apes a personal tablet they can carry around and use to communicate with people.
To make it even crazier, the bonobo chat app is supposed to get hooked up to a remote presence robot the apes can control. The apes could play chase games with visitors of the sanctuary without leaving their cozy cages.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
