Honda Miimo Robotic Lawn Mower

Mowing the lawn is harrowing work. And while not the first autonomous lawn mower to grace these pages, the Honda Miimo Robotic Lawn Mower is the first coming out of an established multinational corporation whose stellar reliability track record warrants confidence (and, probably, your hard earned bucks). Miimo comes equipped with a computer and a handful of 360-degree sensors to take care of your lawn completely independently (and safely), though you’ll need to set up a boundary wire either over or underground that’ll keep the robot within limits and away from obstacles like flowerbeds, trees, and your pool. Because you’re not paying somebody to do it (or doing it yourself) you’re welcome to have Miimo trim your lawn more often, making for an more uniform overall look, and since it runs quietly and self-charges, once everything is set up you won’t need to give it much thought. It’s also equipped against theft much like a car radio, with an alarm that’ll sound if lifted off the ground and a bricking of the unit that can only be undone by entering a unique anti-theft PIN code into its control panel.
