The autonomous robot weeder from ecoRobotix

ecoRobotix is a Swiss startup that’s built something truly amazing.

This autonomous solar-powered robot rolls through fields of crops, inspecting every patch of growth on the ground.  If it spots any weeds, it applies a targeted microdose of herbicides right where it’s needed.

The benefits are obvious – less “non-food” finding its way into our food supply, higher yield for farmers, and lower prices at the grocery store.

This is such a simple idea and a great application of technology.  I love it.
