Dolphin Gets An iPad

Merlin the dolphin is the first animal to get an iPad, and he’s using it to teach humans about dolphin communication. The researchers have found a way to waterproof the iPad and are now using it to help Merlin — an animal that lives in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico — to make associations between physical objects and digital representations of those objects. The next step will be to layer in verbs and prepositions, making the dream of interactive communication with the brainiest animals on the planet a true possibility. Original Posting
