Mower: The Robotic Lawn Mowing Sheep


Advertisements

Yep, you read that right. A robotic sheep that will mow your lawn while you lie down in the sun sipping a delicious strawberry daiquiri. The sheep, named Mower, has been designed by Osman Khan, a visiting assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon’s, with Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” in mind.

The robot features GPS navigation, obstacle avoidance sensors and lawn mowing teeth. It will move around your backyard on 6 little articulated legs, cutting grass wherever it steps. If you want to check him out, Mower is currently on display at the Robot 250 festival in Philadelphia, PA.
