When you kill all the wolves and get overrun by deer and wild boar, you can rely on a robot to keep them from eating your crops. It's too bad it looks like something out of a Japanese nightmare.

Silverstein works as a crop specialist for Freight Farms, a company that creates what it calls Leafy Green Machines—essentially shipping containers decked out with enough hydroponics equipment and tools to produce two to four tons of produce a year, in any climate or location. “You can put it in a parking lot on concrete or pavement, so you don’t need good soil,” Silverstein says. That’s something most urban areas are short on.
