Peter the Elephant Plays With Tablet
Posted on March 29, 2012
Here is a video of Peter the elephant playing with a Samsung tablet, the Galaxy Note. Peter uses his trunk to use music apps and look at photos. He also uses a stylus to draw with a drawing app.
The video was created by Samsung. CBC.ca reports that Samsung says the video is real and no editing tricks were used. There is also some raw footage of Peter using a drum app on the Galaxy Note here. Samsung says in a release taht Peter lives in a quite rural village in Thailand and he already had music and drawing skills.
Researchers have been training orangutans to use iPads and there are apps for cats, so intelligent creatures like elephants using tablets is certainly believable. Peter the elephant deserves a much larger tablet though.Samsung should make him a giant touchscreen tablet to use.
