Chimp beats students at computer game

A particularly cunning seven-year-old chimp named Ayumu has bested university students at a game of memory. He and two other young chimps recalled the placement of numbers flashed onto a computer screen faster and more accurately than humans.

"It's a very simple fact: chimpanzees are better than us - at this task," says Tetsuro Matsuzawa, a primatologist at Kyoto University in Japan who led the study.

The chimp obviously has a PS3 in his brain thus it's quite self-explanatory that the student were beaten.
