The one thing you don’t expect to find at a theme park dedicated to recreating life in the First and Second centuries is Wi-Fi. However, Kfar Kedem, or Village of Yore, theme park in Israel, is doing just that. The theme park not only reenacts life in Galilee during the Biblical area, it also provides wireless Internet on a very unique platform: a donkey.
According to Fast Company, this is one of the first times any business has adopted animal-mounted wireless as part of their business strategy. The idea behind the ass-mounted wireless internet was for mobile device-inclined foreign tourists to have a way to share their experience by uploading photos or tweeting about their visit to the park. Five of the 30 donkeys in the village have wireless routers attached to them and other Wi-Fi-friendly mounts are coming.
So if you ever visit this park, take advantage of the opportunity to finally tweet: “I’m at Kfar Kedem and my ass has Wi-Fi.”
