Last month I posted two videos that showed that the apes are getting smarter, as I mentioned before these videos were developed early in the film making process of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. And remember I tweeted about a 5-year-old ape outsmarting a human college student in a number game? Well if you want to test your skills and see if you’re smarter than an ape, a new iPhone app just launched to test your intelligence in which players can take the same memory test to compare their skills with another primate. The number game app will also work on an iPad which is what I used to download the app, if you don’t have both you can play online as well. Think you’re smarter than an ape? Take the test to find out.
I’ve also included two videos below:
1. A video that served as inspiration for Director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Rupert Wyatt. In this video, a few soldiers give a monkey a loaded gun.
2. A video of a chimp performing remarkably well on a short-term memory test, easily beating a human.
Can’t wait till the movie releases!
