Eliott Sarrey was all smiles last night as he received his prize for his Bot2Karot robot gardener as truly one of the top young inventors in the world.
He was the first French winner of the event as well as the French contestant, at Google’s Mountain View HQ in California.
Eliott, near Nancy, Lorraine, from Maron, had designed and constructed his Bot2Karot – pronounced like botte de carrotte [group of carrots] – using an electric drill burr, a 3D printer and 3D applications. It took three months and, when concluded, is going to be controlled by smartphone.
The robot that is finished will take over a few of the backbreaking work in horticulture, particularly tending plants that are low, and may hoe, bed plants up and water them. It’s going to enable the disabled to do a bit of gardening themselves.
Eliott’s Incubator award celebrates a pupil between the ages of 13 and 15 whose job shows outstanding guarantee in a discipline of science.
