Soon your Roomba automated vacuum cleaner will have an outdoor buddy, the Automower.  Laden in solar panels, the mower can recharge its battery when the sun shines or return to its base station for an off the grid fill up.  Lawn capacity maxes out at .5 acres, which should be adequate for most Americans, and its 3 rotating blades are designed to cut the grass so fine that it decomposes quick enough to doubles as a fertilizer.  Hands and limbs won’t get severed thanks to a few security features installed, such as 4 digit PIN code to turn the mower on and off, an auto off switch if the mower is picked up and an auditory alarm system.  Keeping the mower on your property is as simple as installing a proximity wire.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
