Composting Robot Wants Your Kitchen Scraps (VIDEO)

One of the scariest parts of really greening a home can be starting to compost. After all these years of doing things the way we've done them, it seems so counterintuitive to keep decomposing scraps of food at home -- sometimes even inside!

Plus, there's the smell, right? Well, according to MNN, we can once again put our faith in a robot -- a composting robot -- to do the dirty work for us. Maybe it's the least green way to compost, because it uses energy, but maybe it's a start!

It also has a carbon-filter which takes out the smell, though it is hard to imagine a bunch of leftover Chinese smelling good after a few weeks of fermentation. Nevertheless, the Nature Mill seems to be a major advancement for those wanting to turn kitchen garbage into garden nutrients.
