If every kid had a Casmobot, there would be way more little boys knocking on your door asking if they could mow your lawn. Which would be amusing, until that cute kid charged you $US500.
At the University of South Denmark, Kjeld Jensen has developed a robotic lawnmower called the Casmobot which can be controlled using your Wiimote. Using Bluetooth, the Wiimote communicates to a receiver in the Casmobot. It can be controlled manually, or be completely automated. Jensen says:
"We have been introducing [Casmobot]to the professional workers at the municipalities and the minute they got this Wiimote in their hands and started cutting grass, they were smiling and laughing all the time so I guess I'm not the only one that thinks this is a very good idea."
"This robotics module could, in theory, be put in to any kind of vehicle. In theory, you could actually take this module and put it in to a wheelchair, and walk your grandma just by sitting inside at the window and using your Wiimote."
Unfortunately, if I did that, my cantankerous Grandma would probably spit in my face, so why yes, an old-fashioned walk would be lovely. [Gossip Gamers]
