Mowing the lawn is for suckers—and robots. Kyodo America just introduced two new models of the LawnBott to do all of your spring/summertime dirty work.
There’s no need to run perimeter wire for the LB1200 ($1,299); it just senses the grass. Kyodo’s patented sensors keep the action on your lawn, and you won’t have to worry about the unit chomping up gardens or dulling its blade on concrete.
Thanks to Bluetooth support, the LB3500 ($3,249) allows users to phone in that dreaded Saturday chore—literally, since you can control it via your cell phone or PDA.
Aside from the two newer models, the LB3200 Evolution ($2,749) is still the OG: original grass-cutter. It has a computer on-board that reprograms itself as it learns the length and funky areas of your lawn.
All three mulch and are gas-free, have automatic shut-off and rain sensors. They also each sound an alarm if your neighbor or other passerby tries to snag it for their own sloth.
