OK, hear me out /diy/, I just got a roomba and it blows my mind how much housework it saved me.
It really made me think how many other menial tasks robots could save me and I thought, fuck me I hate watering the garden. Even with irrigation, which you have to spend a decent amount of cash setting up and your own time/someone else's time to dig in and sort out the programming, it still takes time and effort.
So I thought 'why not have a roomba-like robot with a tank of water and a fucking sprinkler on it that goes around watering the garden and lawns. Basically one unit would comprise of
>Slow but robust carriage mechanism that can crawl over small rocks and shit
>Small water tank
So it can learn the layout of your garden and sprinkle as needed. Fuck you could even give it a little aerial that goes up with another sprinkler to get high level plants and it can learn your garden layout and you can point out pot plants and shit to it.
Then when it runs out of water/power, it goes back to a docking station where it recharges and fills with water. The dock station would just need a mains connection and a hose into it.
Thoughts? Any engineers can put a word in about the feasibility? I mean fuck they already have a mopping robot, how different can it be?
I'm off the Grid

Just rented a cabin off the Oregon coast. The owner is interested in selling it to me, but he wants to see if I'll keep it clean and provide the upkeep needed to the property.
That being said, I need help on maintaining a certain standard of living for myself, my wife, and my kids. The cabin comes with a couple of generators, and a water heater that runs on propane. Our water is a gravity system that come from a nearby creak. Is there another option besides generator to at least keep the fridge running and lights on? I really don't want to pay out the ass in gasoline for the generator, and that shit gets loud. Any machinery I need to invest in?
Of course tv and game system is a wanted luxury, but it's not necessary. money isn't a problem. But I prefer to keep it as cheap as possible.
I need help

My phone is dead..
I assembled Samsung Galaxy S5 from two broken ones, one of which was water damaged, but screen worked fine. The other one had a fully working phone except the OLED display. The first time I assembled this phone, I didn't fasten the screws thight enough and the camera didn't work. I didn't really care and I used it for half a year in daily use. Recently, I reassembled it, replaced front camera and the back camera from water damaged one. I tested the two before and these did work fine, but after this recent reassembly, my phone literally died. At first, it displayed greenish Samsung logo and it slowly faded away. I thought, that it was a display connection issue, so I made sure, it's properly connected. Then I held the power button down for a minute (Sometimes, it fixes hardware issues) and then inserted the battery again and switched it on. It seemed normal at first, but as soon as the yellow text "warranty bit void" apoeared, it quickly switched off. I was scared and I quickly removed the battery and I've tried reassembling again and then powering on but with no luck.
Is it static electricity damage?
