Being a homeowner, sometimes, isn't the "dream" you think it will be.  Sometimes, you'd just like to sit and enjoy what you have instead of mowing, trimming, painting, patching, repairing and all the other things that come with owning a home.

You can scratch "mowing the yard" off the list of things to do.  (Unless that's your time to get away from everything...and everyone?)

Check out the "LawnBott."  From the LawnBott website:

"An autonomous robot, the LawnBott operates automatically using its sophisticated computer and a perimeter wire to determine when and where to cut. It can move freely within an enclosed area, detecting the faint sinusoidal signal from its transmitter to tell it where and where not to mow. LawnBott can also operate in an area without a perimeter wire in an enclosed area utilizing a fence or small border at least 4 inches tall."

"When the LawnBott begins its work (programmed by the owner), it leaves its docking station and begins to mow in an adaptive pattern. It will mow in a straight line until it bumps into an obstacle, such as a tree or flower pot, or until it comes to its perimeter wire, then it stops, backs up, turns and takes off in a different direction."
