Robot Mushroom Picker

Engineers from University of Warwick's horticultural school, Warwick HRI, have designed a robot to help mushroom farmers.
The robot finds only perfectly ripe mushrooms and gently picks them with a suction cup and quick twist of the wrist.
So far, the robot is only half as fast as human pickers but it can work 24 hours a day, does not make mistakes, and does not require flogging.
