A lawn mower that puts me out of a Saturday job. OK!
But we all know what kind of power it takes to cut grass, so will it be recharging every five minutes? And we all know all yards are not rectangles, can it really go around everything and not miss patches? And we all know if we get one of these our wives will just find something else for us to do instead of watching the game, so this must have been invented by a single guy who thinks us married guys will actually benefit. Sorry, dude! This won't help!
Great idea. Perhaps the significant aspect of this product news is Honda's involvement. This is a big step in consumer robotics. We may see additional Honda products using the basic technology in the mower. I can't imagine Honda would do a one-off robotic product. It will be fun to see what comes out going forward.
This is a great convenience. I wonder if having it automatically return to its docking station to charge is just too much.
Seriously, this is a chore that many would rather not deal with. In our area this means that we have lots of lawn services. I do my own with a John Deere rising mower. Actually, I kind of like it. This year we have not had to do it very much, so that might be why.
I wonder, can this be set on a schedule so that you don't even have to be there. That would be great for people who travel a lot.
I can see thousands of neighborhoods transformed, with kids and parents lolling around on Saturday afternoons while Mimo tends to the grass cutting. How's a kid suppose to earn a little extra pocket money these days with this kind of innovation? Seriously, this is very cool and a great modern convenience. We have an electric fence for my dog and I imagine the perimeter mentioned functions similarly via wireless radio signals.
Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
