RoboBonobo: Because apes obviously need a weaponized telepresence robot:

RoboBonobo & Team via Extreme Tech

What you’re looking at really is a bonobo bust stuck on top of a mobile, robotic base. Dubbed the RoboBonobo, the robot will eventually be controlled by apes armed with wireless Android tablets — much in the same way that a soldier remotely pilots a UAV.
There's a kickstarter so you can help fund the work. Because of course there is.

Brought to my attention by Will F. (Who knows important ape-related news when he sees it.)
