Watch Him Learn!

Ok, aside from the ridiculous nature of this Japanese television show, what they’re presenting is really pretty amazing. The chimp is presented with the instructor riding a Segway then given the opportunity to ride it himself. The chimp crashes into the woods. However, as he rides more and more and watches the instructor continue riding, the chimp very quickly learns how to maneuver it. Pretty amazing to me and a testament to the intelligence of our ancestors, the monkey.
