I came across this today. It's a simple device to help weeding. It's already exceeded the inventors expectations of raising $8500 - it's up to over $10,000 raised for production. It'll cost $8 for one and shipping is $15 for us in Ireland.

Have a look and let me know your thoughts. I actually think it's very clever.

UPDATE: As of today the amount pledged has increased to $13000 !!! Exponential!!!!

I think its stupid. had an idea like this myself years ago for cleaning the visor of a motorbike helmet sure you could make one of these with a spork and clip from trekking poles.

It's an interesting example of the design process a student project? What is missing is market research and user trips.
Personally, I prefer to use my finger and thumb!
