WORX today announced that their robotic lawnmower, the Landroid, will land in Australian stores on September 1. The Landroid is a battery operated, robotic grass-cutting machine similar to a Roomba. It is capable of cutting up to 1000 square metres of lawn on a single charge.

The Landroid is intended to be a “set-and-forget” device; after the initial setup of the charging station and boundary wire, a user never has to touch the robot again. After mowing the lawn according to its pre-programmed schedule, the Landroid returns to its charging station.
Whenever the Landroid’s battery is running low, it will detour for a quick power up, then complete its scheduled job. In addition, the Landroid is a zero emission machine.

The Landroid has a number of safety features ensuring the device shuts down if all four wheels aren’t touching the ground. It will also avoid any obstacles it encounters while mowing.

The WORX Landroid has a recommend retail price of AUD$1199, but the feeling of kicking back, and drinking a beer while someone else mows your lawn is priceless. It will be available to purchase from Masters and Bunnings.
