The FarmBot Genesis is a farming machine designed for at-home automated food production. The autonomous robot can be installed atop and around a small garden - in your backyard, on a rooftop, or inside a greenhouse. FarmBot performs nearly the entire gardening process prior to harvesting, including planting the seeds, watering each plant precisely and on a set schedule, monitoring conditions and removing weeds. You can pre-order your own FarmBot kit for $3,900.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
