FarmBot Genesis – our robot overlords just want to keep us fed

FarmBot Genesis in use

Growing your own food is one way to become more sustainable in your life but not everyone has a green thumb or time to spend digging into the dirt (no matter how therapeutic it may be). For those that want to grow their own food but are better with a keyboard than a trowel, check out FarmBot Genesis, the open source farming robot.

This is a device that is designed to turn your personal farming dreams into a robot controlled reality. FarmBot will do all of the work needed to get your farm started. Use the app to tell it where and what to plant and it will get started planting and caring for your future side dishes.

The bot takes care of all the things you need to grow your own food. All you need to do is tell it what you want done as your plants are growing. It can be adjusted to fit a variety of plot sizes and since it’s open source, there are tons of ways for it to be adjusted to fit your needs. FarmBot Genesis is $3,100 but when you think of the many years of possible food savings, it really pays for itself.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
