The robots are coming!

Just weeks after a beer-delivering robot hit the scene, WORX popped up with news that its line of WORX Landroid Robotic Mowers is expanding this summer. Personally, I don’t even dig the idea of a Roomba to vacuum inside, so the thought of setting a Landroid loose on the yard isn’t my bag. But if you’re not big on handling lawncare yourself, maybe you’ll be into it.

According to WORX, three new models are available to help homeowners keep their lawns looking great “quietly and efficiently without supervision.” These shouldn’t run off at night as R2-D2 did on the sands of Tatooine, so that’s a good thing.

WORX Landroid Robotic Mowers are available to handle 1/8, 1/4, and 1/2 acre yards.

The Landroid is guided by a patented AIA (Artificial Intelligence Algorithm) technology that WORX says “gives the Landroid problem-solving capabilities that allow it to cut the lawn more efficiently and to better navigate through narrow passageways compared to other robotic mowers.” It can navigate up slopes and inclines of 20° (35%).

There’s a lot of tech built into these things and optional accessories, such as a collision-avoidance system and a little canopy to protect the Droid from the rain are available.

You can’t buy a Landroid from a Jawa, so you’ll have to pick one up at Amazon or
