VetGLASS: GLASS for Vets?

Everyone knows that a wearable device like GLASS can change many industries. We have already seen many doctors use GLASS to better serve their patients.  Klasien van de Zandschulp and Sander Veenhof are working on a cool solution that would make GLASS farmer-friendly. Dairy farmers can use GLASS to receive updates about the status of their cows. The device can recognize each cow using their QR codes or voice recognition when the farmer speaks the cow’s unique number. Here is how it works:

Every cow that passes by during milking is recognised by Google Glass, either by QR codes on their collars, or via voice recognition when the farmer speaks the cow’s unique number: “Ok glass, check cow status, 256”. .. Information about a specific cow is then projected onto the glass, for example the amount of milk the cow produced that day, the fertility status or the amount of food the cow has eaten. The cows are wearing sensors, which provide the farmer with real-time updates about when a cow is suspiciously overactive, has a change of body temperature or a break in her eating pattern.

This is just a start. Vets can also use Google GLASS to better take care of animals they are dealing with. In fact, I am surprised that we have not seen more solutions like this. We can’t wait to see what else these guys will come up with.
