The good news is that when the robots rise up to destroy humankind, the grass is going to be perfectly manicured.
Few people know about Asimov’s fourth law of robotics: “A robot must do all the crap that humans don’t want to do”, which fits in nicely with the Worx Landroid M. This little autonomous buggy drives around your lawn slicing your grass and keeping it neat, without any interruption from human hands. It’s not perfect – you’ll need to run a boundary wire around your yard before starting, it struggles to get up close to the edges, and will run right over any low obstacles – so be sure to thoroughly clear the yard first. But for the freedom to drink post-lawnmowing beer without having to push around a hulk of grass cutting metal, it’s a bargain. $1,199, worxlandroid.com
