Farmerbot Turns Gardening Into Gaming

Gardening can be lots of fun, but it’s not always really easy. It can be, though, if you’re a robotics expert able to put together your very own robot gardener, who can do all the grunt work by remote while you kick back in a lawn chair with a gaming controller.

Peter Sands’ garden-bot will create a garden in the space provided, down to planting seeds and tending the veg, but it doesn’t work on its own: the robot is really just a proxy gardener manipulated with a gaming controller. Much easier than breaking soil with a pickaxe!

There’s video of the project, too, but unfortunately, it’s a little short on the gritty details. Cool to see the scope of the garden-bot, though.
