Make your next trip to the zoo one you won’t forget. Watch the amazing footage this guy was able to catch with just his cellphone and an eight dollar mirror! Truly, this is so simple you can put a “gorilla cam” together with you kids in minutes. (And yes, these are technically orangutans.)

From MF [note the cute baby monkey & the humans at the end are really monkey-like ~ sublime!]
From the clever chimp who invented “gorilla cam,” Mark Rober:
A simple trick to get you some AWESOME zoo footage with only a camera phone. If you love or hate (or are ambivalent towards) gorillas you are gonna really like this.

This is also a GREAT example of critical thinking and problem solving to share with the hitchlings. The first problem was how to get the monkeys to interact with the zoo visitors. The second problem was how to improve the filmed footage of the monkeys. Mark Rober found simple and elegant solutions to both problems. Finally, in the true scientific spirit he published his results (on YouTube) and demonstrated how others could reproduce them for themselves. Brilliant.
