Husqvarna Automower 435x

Though some are wary of an impending AI apocalypse ala sci-fi flick, The Terminator, we’re huge fans of how many once-annoying household tasks can now be completed by what amounts to robot butlers. But while AI vacuums are somewhat commonplace, similarly-powered lawn mowers have been notedly less successful. That looks to be on the verge of changing thanks to Husqvarna’s Automower 435x.

With the seemingly-simple addition of some all-terrain capabilities (namely AWD), Husqvarna has done away with the one major hurdle most other robot lawn mowers can’t quite manage: hills. You see, the 435x can actually mow grass on up to a whopping 70% incline. That comes in handy, especially considering that, unless you live on the plains of Kansas, your yard probably isn’t perfectly flat. To mate with that magnificent performance, it’s also voice-controlled via either Alexa or Google Home devices, provides an open API for smart home integration, and has ultrasonic object detection and an auto-shutoff feature if it’s lifted up or flipped over. Pricing is set at $5,900 and it should be available later this year.

Purchase: $5,900
