They've taught apes sign language, I can't imagine how teaching them to at least type would be ridiculously hard. Just imagine having apes on this forum, or anywhere on the internet. So far all the knowledge of apes has been kept to the apes, those who do sign language with them, and what the people tell us about the apes. I wanna have a freaking discussion with a gorilla! Or better yet, I want to play online videogames with a gorilla. Just imagine all the fun you could have if monkeys and apes were taught to use the internet. I'm sure you've all read the article about the cybernetic monkeys they made which could play videogames with their mind, Imagine a monkey playing counter strike or something as a special monkey character. And anyone who's into psycology or anything would probabally have a blast analyzing a whole new species, just imagine how cool the psyche of a cimpanzee would be.
