useful robots in this day and age! I think this one could work.
Kudzu is a big problem down south. Fields are overun with it and
pesticides don't kill it. Yet, constant cutting of the vine will
eradicate it. Here's a problem a robot could handle very well.
A spider type robot that could scan a 1 foot square, find a vine, and
cut it, then move on, would be very useful to kill kudzu. These bots
could be rented out for clearing fields. They could be given GPS
boundaries to keep them in the field. No need to distinguish between
kudzu and other types of plants, because kudzu overuns whole
landscapes. When they are done, call them back into the truck and
Let me know when you make em! :)
