I've used one. Works best on dry material. Takes time - stuff does not 
just combust. Get too close and the flame goes out. Things grow back.
Useful but not magic.

Comments against the soggy background of NW England, where it is rare to 
have 24 hours without rain.

On Martin's comment, Raspberry Pi, Robot arm, and one of the computer 
vision packages - snail picker - surely doable.
