With the winter months in full swing and a good chunk of our country getting blasted by blizzards, the miserable pastime of shoveling snow by the pound is back with a vengeance. While many people opt to use a motorized snowblower to get through the walls of snow surrounding their houses to expedite the process, users still have to brave the elements as they push their clunky snowblowers through the ice. Whether or not you plan to shovel snow by hand or machine, it’s a dreadful chore, but thankfully, Spyker Workshop is here to deliver us from our winter woes.

Blending sleek design, modern programming, and the boyish urge to play with a remote-controlled robot, the geniuses at Spyker Workshop created the CyberKAT, an electric RC snow blower you can pilot from the comfort of your home. The sharply-angled silver CyberKAT is clearly modeled after Tesla’s oft-delayed Cybertruck, but unlike the Cybertruck, the CyberKAT is ready for production and here to help. The CyberKAT features a plasma-cut 5052 Aluminum sheet metal frame, Delrin injection-molded tracks and wheels, custom PCB lighting, and an aluminum transmission with High Speed and High Torque modes. For power, the CyberKAT is designed for most 775 electric motors and can run on numerous battery options. Spyker Workshop is even developing a CyBlower that can be mounted on the CyberKAT to act as a snowblower extension, which turns the project from a fun toy to a futuristic winter essential.

While you can buy the CyberKAT without the electronics needed to power it, Spyker Workshop offers an optional electric KIT that includes the radio, ESCs, and motors so you can get to conquering snow as soon as possible. Pricing for the CyberKAT starts at $1,299 and its estimated shipping window is January or February 2022.
