Hey Permies folks.
I'm not sure where to post this thread because I wouldn't consider this a personal project per say. I didn't quite see a thread for advancing permaculture technology, but I wanted to get thoughts on this idea.
What do you all think about using something like Google Glass as an observation tool? My thought is if there was software that could be developed for GG that would work passively with the permaculture designer during the observation process to collect and store data about a site they visit. Hopefully the software would cross-reference various data from the internet about plant and tree species and their characteristics in regards to permaculture design. Also things like slope and geography as well as climate history sun angles and such. These things could be uploaded to your computer where the data could be easily accessed for designing.
Not sure what the feelings are about this. I posted this on the Geoff Lawton 2014 PDC Facebook page but wanted to expose it to some more people out in the permaculture world.Who knows, maybe someone could take the idea and run with it to help speed up world domination for permaculture.

Let me know what you think.
