For the low, low price of "a lot of money," you can skip the whole mow-it-yourself thing.
Are you in the market for a robot that'll mow your lawn? The Miimo might be what you're after.
Using a set of wires that produce an electrical field, Miimo can autonomously navigate and mow your lawn.
It has five different modes, each mowing the lawn in a different way, depending on lawn growth and other factors.
360-degree sensors will stop mowing when the Miimo encounters a human or animal.
If someone tries to pick it up, it will sound an alarm and lock itself up.
It can only be restored to full functionality by entering a PIN on its control pad.
The Miimo comes with a docking station that it will enter on its own for charging, which happens when the battery runs below 30 percent.
The HRM 310 has a 1.8-Ah battery that can mow up to 30 minutes and is capable of tackling about a half acre of lawn.
The HRM 520 has a 3.6-Ah battery that can run for up to an hour and should be able to cover 0.75 acre, charging as necessary along the way.
The HRM 310 will go on sale this June for $2,499, while the more capable HRM 520 will siphon $2,799 from your wallet.
