Today on We Dig Plants, hosts Alice Marcus Krieg and Carmen DeVito do their part to contribute to the “robots will take our jobs” story! Our guest: Rory Aronson, the creator of the FarmBot.

This robot is installed above a planter box, before Raspberry Pi, a rudimentary (and cheap) computer pushes it into action. FarmBot then plants and waters seeds in order to grow crops with minimal human labor.
