quite like the look of the small robots, toiling away 24/7, weeding etc, they look quite practical. But when you move on to the really big tackle, it's a job to imagine, a combine, or forager, working all day, without re-charging, or 'whatever'.
But this is the start of a new revolution, with electronics, we have no idea of what some nutty professor is going to discover, how can we, he hasn't discovered it yet ! The changes in my lifetime, that we have witnessed in farming, are really quite mind boggling, and yet, we quietly absorb them into our practices, with little fuss, but not little expense. Who knows, nuclear powered tractors, with free antiradiation overalls included. Nobody knows what will, or is being invented/tested, nor even those nutty professors, but above all, one thing is certain, just like death and taxes, everybody needs to eat, unless, someone is developing an alternative form of fuel, for the human body to live/work on, you never know .....
It's always interesting to muse as to what the future may hold... but, where does it all end? I'm really not a fan of all this further automation in farming, field robots etc. Call me a luddite, but it looks a bleak future to me, it'll end up with robots outside in the sun, wasting the earths resources, and at the same time bored, unfit people wasting the earths resources sitting inside, suffering from mental health disorders and vitamin D deficiency.
I realise my view on life, and the way I live my own makes me a bit of a dinosaur, but, I know I am a lot happier and healthier when outside in the weather working.
