The people who brought you the vacuum cleaner and the wet-floor cleaner are about to go into the lawnmowing business, according to Forbes. In a profile of Roomba, they say:
Next comes a robot lawn mower and bigger military bots that can go faster and farther.
Now instead of making your kids mow the lawn, you’ll make them set up the Lawnba to do all the work for them. The only concerns we have is that when the robot bumps into your leg, it may not be quite so painless compared to the Scooba. They’d better refine its pathing algorithm, or a lot of legless people are going to be quite angry.
