I tend to be notoriously hesitant when it comes to crowdfunding efforts*, but once in awhile something hits my radar that I’ll share here on the site. Tertill: The Solar-Powered Weeding Robot for Home Gardens is just such a project, and it’s one that sorta breaks two of my barriers – crowdfunding and home robotics. I have no interest in owning a Roomba to vacuum for me, and when it comes to lawn-mowing robots, that’s just terrifying (they look like Battlebots, so I figure they’ll attack children) and of no interest since I love mowing my lawn. One thing I don’t like? Weeding our gardens. In our raised beds here at Rock Father HQ, we have a major weed problem, and the girls and I can’t keep it under control. It’s a huge pain, and that’s where a little guy like Tertill can come in. Check this out, and watch the pitch video below.

You can see the full details on Tertill and how it works via the project’s Kickstarter page.
