loquilove is building a new online live tutoring and language learning app for a good cause. The platform allows you to learn and teach a language online and at the same time help educate children or entrepreneurs in third world countries. On the app tutors and students from across the world can easily connect and interact online to learn or teach any language. Giving or taking live lessons will be affordable and as easy as using Skype or ordering an Uber. You can conveniently search students/tutors by skill level, schedule lessons, provide ratings and pay directly on the app. www.loquilove.com/kickstarter
Online fashion retailer Everlane has focused on being transparent about its supply chain?including how much it costs to make each product. Its first physical store reflects this concept of transparency so there is no product in the windows. The brand is centered around people, and that is what you see when you look in. Also importantly Everlane has designed a point-of-sale system from scratch that creates a connection between your online profile and your shopping behavior in-store so your customer service is improved.
UmbraCity allows you to borrow and return umbrellas using fully automated kiosks. The idea came from the University of British Columbia and Vancouver is the first city to adopt the service. http://umbracity.com/
Augmented reality start-up, HoloMe, has created a holographic version of the catwalk show which can appear anywhere, including in the street. A hologram is a photographic recording of a light field, rather than of an image formed by a lens, and it?s used to display a fully three-dimensional image of the holographed subject against any background. Models wearing fashion from the new British brand RIXO were captured in augmented reality using HoloMe?s software solution, which automatically processes visual inputs for the creation of high quality, life-like holograms which you can see on your smartphone, providing you with a front row seat to your own personal fashion show, on demand. http://holome.co.uk/
