Robot Lawnmower

Show up your neighbor's John Deere tractor-style lawnmower with this remote-controlled grass chopper from Husqvarna. Yep, it's like a Roomba for your lawn. The thing is seriously decked out, and Husqvarna says it can take care of your lawn without supervision. The Automower 260ACX has ultrasonic sensors to stop it from smashing into things, and when it needs charging it just heads home to the Automower charging station. If anything does go wrong, your lawnmower can send you a text message to let you know it needs help.

This device sells for about $5300, and is available only in Europe at the moment. No word on when the Automower is heading stateside, but with baseball season ramping up, now might be a good time to take a trip across the pond to get one of these babies for those lazy Sunday afternoons.
