But why am I writing about this on a greenhouse blog? Because it could very well change the way we do business.
Apps are just now being created by third party developers, and will be similar to smartphone apps. The difference is, you will be able to control these apps using voice commands, and you'll see information displayed in front of your eyes wherever you go with the device. Lastly, your hands will be freed up and you'll no longer be tethered to a workstation. You're free to work and move around anywhere while still being connected to all the information you need.
I am already imagining the applications for a greenhouse. Think of these possibilities:
- Adjust your climate control settings by saying "Open shade 10%"
- Start watering a bench by saying "Water bench 151"
- Look at a plant and automatically display information about it
- Snap a quick picture of the type of fan you need to order and instantly email it to GGS ;)
