Yesterday, I had an opportunity to take Google Glass out to explore the new Mary Idema Pew Library Learning and Information Commons at GVSU.  It was a great opportunity to talk to students and staff around the potential of such an amazing technology like Google Glass.

Below is a video of the ASRS (Automated Storage and Retreival System) which stores up to 600,000 books.  Jackie from the library provides a short explanation of how it works!

What are your thoughts about leveraging the use of Google Glass at GVSU?
