There have been a number of interesting technologies I’ve seen this month, but the most interesting thing I’ve seen has been the farmbot. Interchangeable attachments, it waters, weeds, and plants the food. Apparently you can control it from a remote computer and you can 3D print many of the pieces yourself if something fails. It’s a cool bit of engineering and technology using the RasberryPi 3 along with other components.
Would I get one?
At $3,000 it’s more of a curiosity for me and I marvel in the thought that has gone into it. However, it’s not a product I would actually buy. I just don’t have the space, time or inclination to maintain something like this, but I think it’s kind of cool. Kind of along the lines of aquaponics storage container structures.
