    Archimedes aided digging device failed Kickstarter

    The Archimedes mechanical device for aided digging, by Gianfranco Bernardi. Failed on Kickstarter with €0 pledged of €50,000 goal.





    Clever, and reasonable for niche applications like for gardeners with limited mobility. Nevertheless, would not work here in Colorado, where the ground is too hard for hand shovels to be effective digging tools.

    The effort expended.
    WHY?

    Would be of no use after first blade full.

    To make it worthwhile, I think you might need a combination of a specific soil type plus a specific type of hole or trench to dig.
