The iRobot Terra, A Roomba-Style Lawnmower

February 7, 2019

This is a promotional video for the iRobot Terra robotic lawnmower. You just charge the bastard, set up the wireless beacons around your yard, connect it to the phone app, and like 4X the amount of time it would have taken you to push a mower, presto, your grass is cut. Hey -- at least you got to watch TV the whole time neighborhood kids were testing to see if it would run over their toes. Of course it looks like it's for someone who already keeps their lawn maintained like a golf course fairway, because based on its small size and electric motor, I'm assuming this thing doesn't have much, how do I put this *making inappropriate thrusting motions* oomph. But what do I know? I'm just a firm believer that if you're going to spend crazy amounts of money on a robotic lawnmower, why did you even have children? Are kids these days even building character? Food for thought. "That was pretty shitty food for thought." So it was junk food, it's all I know.

Keep going for a couple pictures and a video. The mower will be available soon in Germany and as a beta program in the US later this year.





Thanks to Clark, who agrees the key to a banging looking yard is a criss-cross cut.

    This is cool and all but I need one that does double duty. I want a robotic snowblower and mower. You just need one self propelled robot and you can have a snowblower attachment and a mower attachment for it.

    Does it empty the grass all by itself?

  • The_Wretched

    Mulching, it eats the clippings.

  • Closet Nerd

    Uhhh, this is why i had kids, so i can make THEM cut the grass and take out the trash

  • I don't care. I don't have grass.

  • Bling Nye

    Not even a landing strip?

  • TTF

    :15 mark, the shadow hides the attempt by the editors to blend a different set of grass as the mower passes.

  • Astaroth

    Well its about time!

    Will it upload the map of my yard to a server somewhere just like the Roomba does with the interiors of people's homes.

  • The_Wretched

    It'll also take pics through the windows of the neighbor's house.

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    I don't need it to do that. I have a good setup already.

  • Wooder

    Great as long as this mower knows when its cutting grass OR flower beds...kinda determines its life span.

  • Ollie Williams

    Apparently, like the vacuum, if it gets low on charge it will go back to the charge station, charge, and go back to work, so battery life is somewhat less important.
