Need a New Programming Language? Try Zig

The lenses themselves are cut from scrap polycarbonate twin-wall sheet with a linear pattern which does much to add some art-deco flair. They’re placed inside a pair of 3D-printed tubes mounted on a zig-zag arm, with the tubes themselves carrying G4 lamp sockets for use with compact plug-in LED modules.

Novato Firm Marries Data Science, Weed

NOVATO, CA — Call it a marriage between data science and the Zig Zag man.

That’s the concept behind a Marin company’s plan to produce more potent marijuana at greater volume.

Trym last month announced the development of a new crop-steering module that the Novato-based company says boosts production efficiency through a combination of sensors and data-analytics.

Crop steering is a long-standing practice used in large-scale greenhouse vegetable farming. The practice relies on the manipulation of a controlled environment to elicit a desired response in a crop.

In cannabis cultivation, the desired result is typically higher yields and improved quality.

The result is a steady crop of sticky marijuana that packs a wallop, according to Trym customer Randy Hansen, the co-founder of Pacific Grove, indoor cannabis grower.
