I hate cutting the grass and I hate paying people to cut it, maybe that is why my yard looks long and dingy.  If only they could invent something that would help remedy both those problems... And, I think they have!

Check out the “LawnBott.” From the LawnBott website:

“An autonomous robot, the LawnBott operates automatically using its sophisticated computer and a perimeter wire to determine when and where to cut. It can move freely within an enclosed area, detecting the faint sinusoidal signal from its transmitter to tell it where and where not to mow. LawnBott can also operate in an area without a perimeter wire in an enclosed area utilizing a fence or small border at least 4 inches tall.”

“When the LawnBott begins its work (programmed by the owner), it leaves its docking station and begins to mow in an adaptive pattern. It will mow in a straight line until it bumps into an obstacle, such as a tree or flower pot, or until it comes to its perimeter wire, then it stops, backs up, turns and takes off in a different direction.”
