This invention solves a problem for dogs required to carry necessary licensing, vaccination and identification tags with them at all times. Common practice is to keep the tags on a pet by inserting the tags onto a ring then attaching the ring to the dog’s collar around its neck. This method of displaying the dog’s tags causes unwanted noise from multiple tags contacting each other each time the dog moves. These tags can eventually wear-out, get lost, or catch on objects to cause potential injury pet. This method to attach dog tags to the dog’s collar is neither safe nor comfortable for the pet, and causes grief for pet parents. Tag Tuk™ safely stores and displays necessary dog licencing, vaccination and identification tags securely to the pet. With Tag Tuk™, there are no more annoying, clanking, noisy tags, no more worn-out or lost tags, and chances of injury to pet are decreased because these tags are safely stored, displayed tucked away inside Tag Tuk™ secured to the pet’s collar. Tag Tuk™ delivers protection against those noisy, worn-out, lost or catching tags and provides both comfort and safety to the pet and adds peace-of-mind to pet parents.

We also have Virtual Reality for Seniors, Virtual Reality is mainly thought about for gaming, I would like to change that thought.Another use for VR is its use in retirement homes. The fact is, virtual reality is going to change everything and that includes medical applications, exercise, communication.Virtual reality can re-create environments that can trigger memories and increase the quality of life by a significant factor for seniors who are living in those facilities A we get older, we look back on old memories, photos, videos. With the use of VR we can add and bring back memories. Memories fade, but we can help restore those memories of a favorite place, friends, family. I found through use of VR, dementia patients can relive and remember again. I have seen smiles and tears on loved ones as they watched a family member go to the spot where they grew up, or be surrounded by puppy dogs. As people age, their brain activity tends to slow. In order to keep the brain active and responsive, it needs to be stimulated daily. Nursing homes try to entertain their residents by taking them on outings, and volunteers entertain with music. They have game nights, movie screenings and bingo in hopes that their residents can keep sharp and have a good quality of life for as long as possible. We want to introduce unique experiences in VR for seniors. These experiences are 360-degree movies that the VR headset wearer can interact with. The experiences range from walking through a Disneyland Ride to sitting in on a African Safari. It allows them to not only exercise their brain, but “travel” across the world and relive memories within the walls of a retirement or nursing home. Virtual reality helps seniors not only by boosting their happiness, but also promoting brain activity, creating new memories, and hopefully reduce overall healthcare costs exponentially over time.
