Usually, when we think of Honda Robotics, we immediately picture the Asimo, their amazingly advanced humanoid. This might change next summer when Honda introduces a new robot: Miimo, a robot lawn mower.

As described by Honda in their press release, the robot will feature adjustable cutting height and will use suction to straighten the grass blades in order to ensure a better finish. Just like most of its lawn mowing cousins, this robot will use perimeter wire and a charging station in order to operate autonomously.

Although Honda has been developing robots for more than 25 years, Miimo will be the first robot they make commercially available to the public. Even so, we will still need to wait until its official release (Europe only for now) in 2013 in order to see it on store shelves. Via Gizmodo.
