Adafruit industries took a little field trip recently to W/—— project space in Chinatown, NYC to check out Peter Sand’s robot-tended garden.

The giant robot creates a garden, plants seeds, waters them and lovingly tends to it – the operator can control the robotics with a game controller and for the Arduino fans, it has an Adafruit protoshield and Arduinos that help the gardening.

    Would have been nice to see a longer and better video that explains the project and shows more of it in action — otherwise, it’s very cool.

    A few less umms would have been a little more pleasing ;) and maybe some actual demonstration?
