Roomba for weeds

Tertill images from kickstarter campaign.

The inventor of the Roomba-Joe Jones has invented a Roomba for weeds.

It seems like a serious product for someone with the right size garden.

Maybe weeding the garden in the future will be more about robot repair and less about kneeling down and pulling up weeds?

Will this work on my lawn? I have a Roomba for the house, but for my lawn would it be practical?

Are you going to get another dog? I know you can never replace the one you had, but sometimes another is a help in the grief.

I don't think this would work on a lawn but I do think if you had a small high fenced in area this could work at keeping weeds down if it works as advertised.

No plans for a new dog as of's still too soon for me.
