Yes we act.
So you know we see -- -- -- are being used in so we destroys hospitals with kids with big disabled folks that just helping them.
I'll overcome some of that that the problems they've had people in recovery process is -- -- there's always different applications for.
I padded for that matter of some of the other tablets out there how are you guys using this is -- -- came up with the idea of how simple or something like this to use.
Well actually what we're doing is we're using an -- that -- have to talk and what it is it has a variety of different pictures on it and we asked fearing it can to identify one of the objects and put zip.
And it says it out loud.
So what this does is entering its hands don't have developed vocal cords or voice boxes so it's giving them a voice and another way to communicate with us.
So what we do it's just -- enrichment it's funny in games they don't have to participate if they don't like until it's just all about having fun.
Now you guys are from jungle island explained just before we go on and ask more about the happened and how it's used what is jungle island where it's located in and give -- -- of basic -- for those of us who aren't.
In the Florida area.
Okay jungle island is actually Miami's number one and Stanley attraction and it's located in the heart of Miami it's between downtown in South Beach.
It's great place to go bring your family and we have lots of rare rare creatures there we are home of the light here.

We have mama Cass who is that -- -- the only train castle where in the world.
So we have a variety of different animals that are unique jungle island.
So we're -- With a video right now that you guys provide us with the apt there a trainer having a near entering -- and explain how this all works I mean you obviously so they don't -- vocal -- but.
Obviously they had the -- cognitive.
Intelligence to do stuff with an iPad how are you.
How are they using this.
Okay well what we did is we first started out win big huge index cards and we asked them to identify the object on an index card.
So -- successfully completed that stage we moved and we caught all of those objects onto our iPad.
So eventually what they did is they weren't easily take into -- and they just had so much fun being able to -- -- -- and they -- were rewarded right when they got it right.
Or as a move on all right.
Knock out there -- two people who elected us and humility Howard from New -- Mississippi and Michelle -- heiress of both giving alikes on this Saturday.
They seem to like it as well.
So far it seems like it's working well then with hearing -- obviously it shows the the video shows that you guys are obviously touting that.
We actually I heard.
And then what's the planet it is our planet maybe -- it with other animals that have the ability to use to use the same kind of processes -- -- Yes so Carolina we're just focusing on hearing at Cannes but eventually yes we would love to be a -- isn't sweat some more of our animal species in the -- What are traders telling you when you when you went from -- note cards as you mentioned the beginning to act pat was there anything out for people first go away is maybe a little bit too much -- no car the working great what are we need to use an iPad is more.
Just a splash to get publicity -- can give that kind of feedback -- -- first you had some people that were a little bit skeptical.
Right -- thumb but.
By no means are we doing this for publicity this was just one thing we have a whole program -- -- and you can't school where it's all enrichment dedicated to stimulating the mind that these captive orangutans.
And I -- was just one tool that we thought would be -- for them the use something new something different and they took to it so well that.
We now were just going along with as they progressed.
Are we have someone at a viewer has a question for a credit check come in right now our name is Julie Colin Tobin.
Asked the question you know can this be used with children have speech development problems.
-- -- I've had to -- -- with that.
Absolutely that's what our whole apple was designed to do what is tell work with children who are autistic and we found -- the same thing with the Iranian hands.
-- they have the intelligence that speak they just don't have the equipment to do it.
Sell the app that we -- can definitely definitely be it's it's called -- talk it's great act.
-- -- -- -- Question is coming via Twitter is a bit off topic but it's not jungle island they say lighters are real.
Laugh out loud that's from her friend and our friend DC.
Between that and just now so.
-- -- -- -- Yes they are you can kind of jungle island C one for self.
-- an act and why -- -- so big user because of the cross breeding.
On a high you know I mean work with the primates are really getting into that question but he is quite large I can assure you of that.
Eyes of the primates how order material that you don't talk about kids and seek into the zoo and then in their their feedback.
Being able sea animals for the first time.
When they see an iPad you know so many kids are growing up with these now mean -- -- ten years ago he would never seen that.
And for those of us obviously were born later in iPods are obviously new on the scene for kids.
Maybe 56 years old they've -- iPad almost their whole life.
What do they say what what's your reaction when they see the trainers with hearing attained with an iPad.
Well they -- and obviously their first question is can he play Angry Birds I get that probably every day but.
So no they can't play Angry Birds or fruit ninja but you know re cowards like an honor one -- and maybe one day.
Maybe one day -- -- procedure times and -- -- way it jungle island in Miami.
I you can check out the iPad as they use it with figuring -- and hopefully somebody -- a -- -- moving on to future looks exactly what you thanks again for your time.
Great stuff in -- -- idea being able to cross over and you guys are talking with.
