This tomato-picking robot is more efficient than humans and can work 24/7 from CNBC.

Published by CNBC – Root AI’s Virgo robot is designed to pick tomatoes. It has a camera and artificial intelligence software that analyzes whether the tomato is ripe, and an arm with delicate “fingers” that swings out and snags the fruit right off the vine. The machine has been tested at a greenhouse in California, and if everything goes according to plan at Root AI, you might be eating a tomato picked by a robot.
