    This reporter was condescending with the name and with the uninspiring example of moving pots around. Harvest Automation should've been able to salvage their reputation in this clip by being able to explain the potential of their technology.

  • uh look a dumb scientist  !!! we wont have any problems producing food for 9b people … like now we can have lots of food  but wee we have problems and will have problems distribuing it. like industrializating huge amount of land with low eficiency on power consumption, like using robots harvesting  at high resources cost but low on financial cost. yup we will have a lot of hungry people but because of miss use of technology and resources and corporate frendly policies not because the incapacity of producing food.
