Farmbot - a robot that grows food for you

 

Farmbot is an autonomous machine that’s installed on top and around a small garden - in your backyard, on a rooftop, or inside a greenhouse. Once built, it performs nearly the entire gardening process prior to harvesting, including planting the seeds, watering each plant precisely and on a set schedule, monitoring conditions, and pulverizing pesky weeds.

Reminds me a little of this - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Gardening/Got-wi-fi-in-your-garden/m-p/3225

 

Anything that helps people grow their own food has got to be a positive, even if it takes some of the fun out of it. I imagine its not for the likes of @Dale and @timjeffries and @CathM but for the average person it could end up paying for itself.
