The robot lawn mower, called Miimo, looks and works like those robot vacuum cleaners that roll around your lounge busting your dust, only instead of sucking, this one cuts. 3mm of grass, to be exact. Miimo goes on sale next year but only in Europe, so Americans will have trouble finding Miimo.
We've got to admit, The Daily Slap thinks Miimo's pretty cool and we want one, please...pretty please? In fact, we're considering buying a house just so we have a garden that needs cutting. The other option would be to take Miimo for walks at the local park but that would just be a bit odd, wouldn't it.
Not everyone’s ready to greet the robot gardener with open arms though. “Gardening was the only time I got away from the wife,” said Marcus Testicle from Russia. “It was my weekly half hour of peaceful bliss. Now the robot’s taken that from me, she makes me sit through the Opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics every Sunday.”
Hand model Herbert Vertebrae had a note of caution. “Have you people not seen Battlestar Galactica? The new one where Starbuck’s a woman, not the old one with the pretty man from The A Team. This is how it all began - robots as slaves, but they learn, they develop, they grow and then they become the masters. Before you know it, the robots will have destroyed the earth. You mark my words.” We did mark his words. We marked them ‘Crazy’ and threw them in the bin.
So, if you want a lawn that rivals Centre Court you know what to do. Or you could buy a goat.
