The FarmBot Genesis Brings Automatic Organic Gardening To Your Own Backyard!

Have you ever played Farmville, the infamous mobile game where you can drag and drop all kinds of plants you want to grow in your digital garden? Well, thanks to a company called FarmBot from California, this game is becoming a reality.

Their first product – the FarmBot Genesis – is a DIY precision farming robot that anyone can figure out and use.

FarmBot Genesis is an autonomous farming machine that’s installed atop and around a small garden in your backyard, on a rooftop, or inside your greenhouse. Once installed, the FarmBot performs the entire gardening process prior to harvesting, including planting the seeds of your choice, watering each plant precisely on a set schedule, monitoring conditions, and pulverizing pesky weeds.

What’s even more interesting is that the FarmBot is controlled via a web app that uses a visual grid similar to Farmville, meaning that you can drag and drop the kinds of plants you want to grow in your garden. The app can be accessed from a computer, phone, or tablet, so you can modify your farming plan from anywhere and send it to your backyard bot.
