The WaterHobo is a fully automated system that uses an infrared-capable videocamera, a PC and custom software written in C# to search and destroy garden pests. Well, actually, just humans. And it doesn't destroy them either, it uses water to dissuade people from using its inventor's yard as the path to a common swimming pool.
