“As a greenhouse manufacturer that regularly uses advanced technology to automate greenhouse processes, we see a lot of potential applications for this device in the greenhouse.”

GGS has been writing articles and blog posts on the future of the greenhouse industry, and how devices like Google Glass will help growers increase efficiency in their operations and reduce costs.

“We are always looking for ways we can help greenhouse growers achieve their business goals,” said GGS president Leigh Coulter. “Now that we have Google Glass in our hands, a yet unreleased device, we are very interested in utilizing this technology to better serve our customers.”

GGS plans to first test this device extensively, and look for ways that growers can use Google Glass in their day-to-day processes. They are also looking at the possibilities of using the device in their manufacturing plant to simplify tasks, and increase accuracy and efficiency in production.

GGS wants to know if growers are interested in the possibilities that Google Glass bring, and what growers would use this new device for in their greenhouses. They will also be posting initial impressions and possible uses for Google Glass – join in the discussion at www.ggs-greenhouse.com/future.
