Since the discovery of Lime by a group of teachers in the state of Texas, they have become some of our biggest advocates. These educators have helped us understand the importance of new and improved educational technology, and introduced us to a large group of teachers who are thirsty for better ways to enhance the learning environments in their classrooms. We are starting to see the impact Lime could have in educational institutions across the globe. The specific teachers that have been using it thus far are mainly working with k-6 kids. Things like grammar, punctuation correction, and math problems are some of the key ways they have been using Lime. They have also seen future uses for Lime for things like peer classwork revisions and distance learning from experts.
Travel is a necessity for a large portion of jobs in corporate America. In 2014 there were an estimated 451.6 million business trips taken in the U.S. alone. The number rises for 2015 at a forecasted 459.2 million business trips that will take place this year. For those of you who have to travel for your job, whether it is for business meetings, for relationship building purposes, or field technicians who are sent solely for troubleshooting- do you wish you were not having to travel, or at least as much as you currently do?
Augmented reality is an incredibly fast growing technology space. When software “improves” our perception of the real world by adding digital elements, you’re seeing augmented reality. Whether this is a heads-up display in a jet fighter, a golf rangefinder that displays the distance to the green, or a translation app that displays translations on top of the original text, augmented reality can do amazing things to improve our lives.
There has always been a barrier when it comes to communicating through words alone- especially for all of you visual learners of the world…(raising my hand). We can tell someone as much information as we want to, but is the information substantially being absorbed? Is it being understood the wrong way due to lack of visualization? Most likely. Ninety percent of information your brain processes is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text or words. How many times have you been taking directions from someone and you were confused about what they were explaining because you were creating an inaccurate mental picture? Probably more times than not.
A few months ago, our augmented reality mobile app, Lime, was launched to a group of private beta users. After an array of user feedback and suggestions, a new and improved version of Lime has been created and released to a larger group of beta users. This latest version comes with more reliable and stable videos, as well as a more realistic augmented reality.

People often wonder when we will have modern technology capable of giving doctors the chance to interact and aid underprivileged people in developing countries. With the help of augmented reality that day has arrived. Surgeons with the Global Smile Foundation preformed an amazing international surgery this week with the aid of augmented reality and Google Glass. This cutting edge technology allowed a surgeon in Birmingham, Alabama to collaborate with surgeons in El Salvador to correct an infant patient's lip defect. The instant connection allowed Dr. Raj Vyas to virtually interact and assist surgeons with the Global Smile Foundation in the operating room in El Salvador, in real time.
In today’s world, service businesses are looking to improve their rate of successful repairs. Repairing things correctly the first time, and avoiding repeat visits is known as "first time fixed rate". Therefor finding the key to making the repair only once lowers both labor costs and expense.
