Kobi Is An Autonomous Lawn Mower And Snow Blower

Another device is soon joining the vacuum wars. Well, blower and mower wars, to be more precise. Its name is Kobi and itís the first creation made by New York-based Kobi Company. Kobi is not just a lawn mower, itís also capable of blowing snow and removing leaves from your yard. Itís capable of fully autonomous operation and pretty much sounds like an outdoor Roomba. Its creators claim that the average American spends almost 70 hours a year on lawn and garden care which is why theyíve designed this curious piece of tech Ė to help you save time.

Unlike your average human being, Kobi isnít familiar with the concept of laziness, cold, or general discomfort. It does know about battery depletion but no worries, this garden Roomba is equipped with a high-end lithium ion battery and knows when itís time to return to the docking station for a recharging session. While it isnít huge, the fact that itís always lurking in your courtyard and scanning for things to do means that it can blow away snow and collect leaves as soon as these wonderful gifts of nature start falling. In other words, Kobi is always on top of things which compensates for its relatively small bagger and also means that the device is extremely energy efficient because it never has to deal with a huge task. The device is powered by silent brushless motors and requires no fence, perimeter wire or any other kind of physical borders to stay within the limits of your yard. In case you want to manually control this autonomous helper, it comes with a smartphone app which allows you to do just that.

Sounds too great not to be stolen, right? Perhaps, but thatís why Kobi boasts anti-theft protection and is secured with a PIN code. If someone actually tries to take it away, it will emit a rather loud alarm, notify you of its troubles via an app, and go into full lockdown mode so that it canít be used by anyone else.

The Kobi Company is yet to announce an official release date for its autonomous garden assistant as itís still testing early bird units of the device. Unfortunately, you canít get in on the fun because all of those units are already taken but more information is expected to follow soon. For the time being, the only thing we can say for certain is that Kobi sports a price tag of $3999.99. While that may be a lot, no one ever said lawn care comes cheap.
