Asimo got a new friend with Miimo, a new Robotic Lawn Mower from Honda
Sure you must be disappointed that Honda spent all it resources and brain matter in developing the next gen Lawn Mower instead of a nice little Robot butler. Still, I for once welcome this move! Why? Well simply because as a Kid I spent most my weekends mowing my parents lawn, which by the way took me a full afternoon despite having a small kart like lawn mower.
Anyway Honda’s new is the perfect solution for those wanting a beautiful lawn but would rather not or can’t mow it themselves!
Miimo operates a ‘continuous cutting’ system, typically mowing just 2-3mm of grass at a time, several times each week.
It cuts in a random pattern, meaning less stress on the grass, more healthy growth and reduced moss and weeds.
Unlike a traditional lawn mower it doesn’t need to collect cuttings, as the clippings it creates are so small that they are dispersed into the lawn root system, breaking down quickly to act as a natural fertilizer, which improves the health and quality of the grass.
Miimo also deliver excellent environmental benefits: it doesn’t produce CO2 and it is quieter than petrol models.
At launch, Honda Miimo will be available in two models, 300 and 500, offering a maximum perimeter cut of 300m and 500m respectively.
Finally Miimo is the first commercial robotic product manufactured by the company for public use, representing its first step towards providing customers with robotic solutions to improve quality of life at home.
It will be available from Honda authorized Dealers across Europe in early 2013. Available content includes still images.
