The World’s First Solar Powered Robot Lawnmower

Lawns are great but, for all the freedom to roam they grant you, your children and Schumacher the tortoise, they, much unlike my hair, unfortunately have the a somewhat annoying habit of growing – but, thanks to this Automower Solar Hybrid robot lawn mower you may never actually have to get involved with mowing your lawn ever again (thus leaving you free for other, more important things, such as cracking open another cold beer).
Billed as being ‘the world’s first dollar electric hybrid lawn mower’, the Automower Solar Hybrid – which was designed at the Husqvarna Global Design Centre in Sweden and is manufactured in Aycliffe, UK – will power itself around your lawn for around 45 minutes before running low on juice – at which point the clever fellow will make its way back automatically to its recharging station for a quick, free feed courtesy of the Sun’s rays. Additionally the Automower Solar Hybrid also sports solar panels on its back which can be used to supplement the device’s charge if the Sun happens to have put in an appearance whilst the bot is away from its charging station on a grass cutting mission.
According to the official product site the Automower Solar Hybrid is suitable for lawns sized up to 2,100 meters and, if you happen to live in an area known for having residents with particularly light fingers its nice to know that the device comes with an integrated PIN code based alarm system – just in case someone decides to try to spirit your lawn mowing bot away when you’re not looking.
