🎶 I got a brand new combine harvester 🎶

The latest in engineering projects is just a straight up combine harvester that scoops up rice from fields. Like. It doesn’t just act like one – it looks like one you’d find on a farm in real life. It’s incredible that a game built around slaying monsters and saving the kingdom has the capacity for this. What’s next? A machine that threshes that rice in real time?
