FarmBot automated precision farming machines.

FarmBots are open-source, scalable, automated precision farming machines. Think of them like giant 3D printers, but instead of wielding plastic extruders, its tools are seed injectors, watering nozzles, plows, sensors, and more! For an in-depth description, read the FarmBot white paper or start exploring the wiki! Currently, there is one FarmBot in development, FarmBot Genesis, with plans for a crowdfunded launch mid-2014.

FarmBot Genesis The first ever complete FarmBot currently under development. Designed for scalability, hackability, simplicity, and manufacturability. Very much a foundation for future development and research. Targeted at the DIYer and maker movement. Features an Arduino microcontroller and two tools: a seed injector and a watering nozzle. Prototyping Rory Aronson July 2013 to Present No
FarmBot Plumb A vertical FarmBot for vertical gardening. Its just an idea, really. Could be useful on the side of a building where space is limited, or on skyscrapers. Just an idea     No
The Orbicular FarmBOT This FarmBot uses a polar coordinate system to tend to a large diameter circle. Utilizing a single, central supporting pylon this FarmBot is a way to reduce complexity, material costs, and simplify on-site installation and flexibility.
