There’s a fair share of robotic lawn mowers and vacuums on the market today. But there aren’t many that are as full-featured as the new electric Kobi Lawn Robot. This autonomous outdoor helper will mow your lawn, rake leaves in the fall and even remove snow during the winter. Safe to say, Kobi is next-level.
It is slightly more robust than some of the popular grass clippers we’ve seen with four large wheels and a hefty power supply. There are brushless motors that can handle each of the aforementioned tasks at ultra-quiet noise levels. Kobi ships with a charging station that it will automatically return to when not in-use for more juice. It has a pretty serious battery system that can handle up to 40 feet of cumulative snow at once. A built-in GPS system provides direction alongside sensors that detect obstacles in the way. Perhaps coolest of all? It uses weather services to detect upcoming precipitation and it acts accordingly. Kobi is slated to sell for $3,999 when it is released sometime next year.
Does the word ‘labor’ make you jump with joy? If you’re anything like us, it probably does not. Our definition of the word ‘joy’ does not include mowing lawns, cleaning up leaves or removing snow. In fact, we despise these activities. Obviously, that is why we built Kobi. And, obviously, that is why you want one. According to the American Time Use Survey, the average American spends about 70 hours a year on lawn and garden care. That is about 2 entire workweeks. We can think of better ways to enjoy our time off. We guess you do too. Yard work not only takes fingers, toes or hands, but also lives. Hundreds of them every year. If you’re not fit, yard work could well be the last thing you’ll ever do. You wouldn’t want that on your tombstone, would you?
