Looks like a neat home planter if you have a larger garden but get the wallet out.

It is a nice system, but very limited.  It is only useful if you do a ton of onions from seed or you start lettuce from seed to transplant instead of direct seeding, which I think is pretty much only hipster microgreen douches like the one selling it through that site.  It can't do spacings big enough for the things you would normally plant as transplants like tomatoes and peppers and whatnot.

By the time I got it loaded and working properly I could have everything planted by hand.  But it is an innovative idea for big time market gardeners and will have appeal to those who have money and like gimics.   "Hey, look at the cool neat tool I just bought guys!!"

​I picked up a wheel type planter at an auction several years ago.  Remove the side cover, put the seeds in, dial up the plant your seeding and run it down the row.  I usually put up a chalk line about 22" apart to keep row spacing for the cultivator on the Gt. Does a nice job on spacing especially with the lettuce and radish seeds.
