Headline: 45% of crops lost to pests, this robot isn’t related to that at all!

This is an advertisement. Conveniently on sale today too.

FYI: This product is from the makers of the Roomba. While they have an excellent lineup of vacuum products, it wasn't always that way for them. Let this thing bake in the development oven a bit longer, and you will see they add features that make it actually work how they claim it works.

So it’s an Amazon product

I looked into this and you have to put stakes over the seedlings or it whacks it. It wouldn’t work in a succulent garden

Not sure if you meant to reply to me?

The fact is maple syrup was first invented around the Montreal area by native indians. Those same natives are said to have inventented democracy as we use it today.

Makes you wonder if there's some sorta connection between maple syrup and democracy, eh?

Maybe? The FTC Is currently taking an interest

Most of this sub and the gadgets sub is just an endless stream of ads pretending to be news.

Weeds are pests, and herbicide is a type of pesticide, just like insecticide and fungicide are types of pesticide

No one thinks of plans when they hear the word pest in relation to gardening. I don't even know if what you said is accurate, but it is not commonly used and definitely being used in bad faith in this advertising.

Yea i dont see how pests could even be related to a robot that destroys weeds...
