The goal of the program is to figure out an ape's mate preference to increase the likeliness of a successful match during mating season. More matches mean more BABY APES. I just died from this level of cuteness.
The biggest hurdle so far is finding touchscreens that can survive the frustrations of the dating app process; one we all know far too well. Soon after the experiment kicked off, one ape lady called Samboja smashed the tablet displaying the dudes.
We hear you, girl.
I love the idea of a monkey finding love on a dating app. This is the cutest thing I have ever mentally visualized. And baby apes, y'all!
