Candy Lab sees millions with augmented reality

Couch and his co-founder Gilda Campos switched gears and began white-labeling the app, called Candy B.A.R. (blended augmented reality), to organizations such as STL250 and the city of Corpus Christi, Texas, which is using the app to help inform citizens of the hazards of littering.
