amazing forklift. Does things I didn't think were possible.

I can imagine careers cropping up from this.

Dedicated open source improvement specialists. Installation companies. Electronic landscapers. Local food restaurants with twenty or more beds out back. Highly specialized crops. Apartment complex amenities. Dedicated government programs to install and maintain these in impoverished areas.

Lots of room for improvement. New versions that handle new types of crops, far more versatile components that allow pest control, pruning, and harvesting.

Think of this as a true game changer. This is going to change the look of the land.

I don't think it will replace big agro. There will still be vast croplands to feed the wold it's staples. But it will strike one hell of a blow against poverty and world hunger.

It's my belief that small robots able to farm and garden in a variety of roles for a variety of plants and micro climates will be such a big game changer that it could topple governments and change the world.
