Sick to death of petrol lawnmowers losing their sputter and cutter, setting your heart aflutter with the pain of your Victa, making you wish you could bomb it with an interdictor?
Well, set your worries aside, and open your wallet, for the robot revolution is here to terminate long grass while you sit on your asset and save your energy for the more important things in life.
Even electric mowers need the power plugged in, setting you up for a date wherein you might accidentally mow the cord that sows discord with your mower’s power.
Of course, no-one wants the help cutting one’s grass, let alone a robot seeking its merry way with your right to cut what is yours.
That said, there’s grass, and then there’s assets, of which time is one, whose value you must guard to ensure the hard work is done when it needs to be, and the smart work is done by you.
Thus shall we twice hear the news of a robotic lawn mower with blades sharper and more cutting than a Peaky Blinder’s cap, one who puts more fear of hell into mere sheer blades of grass than does hell put itself into the name Thomas Shelby.
After all, domestic grass was meant to grow, but only so high, after which its destiny is to be mercilessly cut down for the betterment of human life, and to the pleasing of one’s eye when surveying one’s own yard, front or back, or upon any areas where grass may grow.
So Pioneer Robotics, born from Jeff Li’s Pioneer Computers, an entity with no connection whatsoever to Japan’s Pioneer company, hath launched and breathed life into DreamRobot Lawn Mower – a cutter to match your robot vacuum’s sucker.
With “up to three hours” of battery life, the promise of (apparently optional) automatic charging, and a working area of up to 1600 square metres, things are all the more impressive when you learn of ultrasonic obstacle detection and avoidance.
And, while doing its merry dance, DreamRobot is IPX4 weather proof, has an adjustable blade height, offers soft-impact blades and a skid plate for “unparalleled” blade lifespan, but that’s not all.
No, there’s more, for an anti-theft password protection is standard, as is an alarm to alert when someone tries to claim your robot as their own.
There is also the price, of which we forewarned above you’d need to open your wallet for, for the price is $1799.
Here’s the corporate video, after which we grace thee with all the specifications you’ll need to know to help you decide whether to permit a robot lawnmower into your life.
