This open-source robotic innovation aims to make everyone a backyard farmer, letting you grow a variety of vegetables without ever having to look after them.
If you think that sounds too good to be true, you’re probably not alone.

But a young startup community called Farmbot has recently released their product plans for a fully-automated garden robot system to handle everything to do with growing your own plants.
Designed and built using Open Source components, the system lets you design your dream garden (up to 1.5m x 3m) using a web app, load the various seeds into a bucket and the machine takes care of the rest.
