"If you constantly have to remind everyone that you are the boss, YOU ARE NOT".

A boss should be a leader, not just a manager. Leaders inspire people by making them better and showing the road to evolution. This is how respect is earned. So, if you want to be treated as a leader, act, speak, and teach like one.

"Why work doesn't happen at work"

An amazing TED talk by Jason Fried. Arguing why the traditional office is dead. If you are a creative professional (developer, designer, marketer, etc), you must definitely watch this video.

I'm glad that we already follow most of these principles in LightBuzz.

Simplify the contour and you'll have more precise finger points.

WE WON THE GRAND PRIZE in Intel's International Competition!
This so exciting news for Kinetisense and LightBuzz. Intel has awarded our app with the first place between 800 competitors from all around the world.

Excited to be a part of David Schnare's and Dr-Ryan Comeau's vision.

The app helps orthopedic specialists and surgeons calculate the wrist & finger range of motion using Intel's 3D sensor.

Special thanks to our development, design and support team for the endless hours they spent to make this project a reality:
- Michael Miropoulos
- Alexandros Diamantonis
- George Georgopoulos
- George Karakatsiotis
- Georgia Makoudi
- Galini Scarlatou

YOU GUYS ROCK!

Read how Kinetisense software helped a 47-year-old patient who was suffering from shoulder pain and reduced range of motion for over 8 months.

This is a real-world example of how #Kinect dramatically improves the quality of people's lives.
