Robomow RL1000 $2500
of my favorite people, my brother, recently introduced me to several tools and gadgets I never would have known about otherwise. One of which is the Robomow RL1000, a fully automated lawn mower. Seriously, this futuristic piece of machinery automatically departs from a base station at a scheduled time and takes care of a job that pretty much everyone dreads. It has innovative “grasscycling” technology, a system that allows grass clippings to decompose quickly and release valuable nutrients into the soil. So, it’s environmentally friendly and collecting the clippings isn’t necessary. Umm, why wasn’t this guy around when I was growing up?
