Do you dare to eat the vegetables grown by the farmers? The gardening revolution of automatic vegetable growing robots!


On the Dragon Boat Festival, the code farmers in Silicon Valley went to the Chinese supermarket to buy some dumplings to eat. Want to eat delicious hometown food? I hate that I don’t have time to grow my own vegetables!

So, the code farmer friend invented an automatic vegetable growingrobotcalled FarmBot, allows you to grow vegetables highly intelligently.

FarmBot requires very few facilities, as long as internet connection, water flow, electricity and sowingmachine toolJust do it. All you need to do is swing your phone/computer, rest your legs beside you, and let FarmBot do the physical work for you!

The specific planting steps are as follows:

First, the machine will automatically install3D printingThe seeding module header

Then collect the seeds by “sucking”

Then, sow seeds one by one according to the pre-programmed program

Watering is also a handsome standardized sprinkler, which is more precise in location and saves water resources.

Design your own vegetable garden with an app

FarmBot’s app is designed like a game interface, you just need to drag and drop the icons of various dishes and place them in the right position. At that time, the machine will grow vegetables according to your formation!

(Pumpkin, peppers, green vegetables… are all planted on a vegetable ground~)

In addition, you can also adjust the order of the steps in the vegetable planting process on the app, such as watering first or fertilizing first, which is completely under your control.

If you’re out and about and suddenly think that you need to water the vegetables one more time, you can use the app to operate the Robotic arm, like this:

Another example is that when birds come to steal your food, you will receive an alert, and then you can use the app to control the machine to drive them away.

Do you think this is the end?

Since it is a farmer who grows vegetables, how can there be less DIY content. FarmBot also provides some functional modules for customization.

For example, install a small weather station and let FarmBot collect and use real-time weather data to make him smarter.

For another example, assembling a small solar panel can save some electricity bills! ~

You can also install rainwater buckets to allow FarmBot to collect and use rainwater. (How frugal are the R&D personnel…)

Watching my organic fruits and vegetables grow up a little bit is like watching a baby grow up~

Moreover, neatly arranged, Virgo can’t fault it…

Although the official definition is to automatically grow vegetables, it feels like it can also be used to grow some flowers and plants~ Can I grow a dumpling?

In addition, the modules that FarmBot needs to use can be made using 3D printing. Moreover, the whole project is open source, you can design the parts yourself and 3D print them. All coder friends can redefine a robot with brand new functions according to their own ideas.

Such a setting can mobilize everyone’s wisdom, so that a large number of custom robot platforms needed by all walks of life can be derived from this platform.

Who created such a vegetable growing robot?

Founder Rory Aronson’s inspiration for this system came from the work of George Lucas. He believes that the self-sufficient life brought by the set of farming Robots in Star Wars is what people will live in the future.

The idea behind his founding of the companynot for money, but hope that their own ideas of life can be spread to everyone. Now the main source of funding for product development is several funds.

Now he has installed the camera in his backyard for a three-month experiment, and the final video will be posted online for comments to be used to improve future versions of the model.Of course, he will alsoInvite hackers to actively crack their systemsin order to improve the safety of its products.

Although the current system is still in the R&D (research and development stage), in the future, Rory Aronson’s goal is to enable everyone to use a less energy, less water, less logistics and less time. mode to get your own food.

You may ask: So after I have planted, do I still have to work hard to harvest?
