Touch the Soil News #759 (feature photo courtesy of Franklin Robotics)
The creators of the roving house vacuum cleaner are now bringing to the market the roving garden weeding robot. The machine (called the Tertill) is solar powered, operates chemical-free and is waterproof. The machine does not even need to be programmed. Just set it in our garden and let it go.
Designed and manufactured by Franklin Robotics, the company is seeking small investors through the kickstarter platform. Franklin Robotics via INDIEGOGO reports that they have raised $334,975 – or 261% of their funding goal. You can buy a Tertill today for only $249, but it is not scheduled to ship until May of 2018.
