This six-wheel-drive remote control robot snow plough is the best thing to happen to snowy mornings since able-bodied kids desperate for an allowance. Powered by six 24-volt 127RPM electric motors, its 52-inch wide blade can clear a footpath in one pass from the comfort of inside the home.
The robot, including raising and lowering its pneumatic plough blade, can be controlled from an included wireless remote so you never have to step outside. And while details on its battery life aren't specified, the fact that you can optionally double the number of batteries it has on board from two to four indicates this thing probably isn't going to run for hours on end.
But as long as it makes it to the end of the driveway and back a couple of times, it could totally be worth its $US7900 price tag. Especially if you plan on entering any Battle Bot competitions in the off season. [SuperDroid Robots via Neatorama]
