I’ve never had a Roomba. And I’ve never had my own garden. But a new company on Kickstarter is combining the two through their original design dubbed the Tertill.
I don’t have much to say on this, other than the fact I think it’s adorable and amazing. As robotics become more and more accessible to the average person, the unique ideas will be what sets a company apart.
Though people with gardens are typically the green-thumb types that will somewhat enjoy taking care of their land, I can imagine this would come in handy for certain folks with busy schedules. Their Kickstart site says you’ll need to keep the Tertill inside the garden with shallow barriers on the perimeter. Other than that, sensors will distinguish between weeds and actual plants. It’s solar powered so you won’t have to worry about charging it or plugging it in to run.
One of the best things about this design is that it’s completely chemical free. Say goodbye to the Roundup sprays, and continue growing beautiful things. Happy planting!
