"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.

Kinetisense, one of the most exciting Kinect for Windows projects we have worked on, is now available in the Windows Store.

Kinetisense is the first Kinect 2 software application to measure, record, analysis and report on human movement and posture. Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Kinesiologist, personal trainers or anyone who is interested in measuring and analyzing human movement will appreciate Kinetisense. Utilizing Microsoft Kinect 2, Kinetisense quickly accurately recognizes the human body and records it's movements. Kinetisense is free to try for 30 day. Month...

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.
