Kobi eats snow for breakfast! Kobi mows lawns with the stamina of a gamer sitting down to Gears of War 4 for the first time. Kobi sucks up leaves and spits them out like a piece of sushi that looks delicious on the plate but tastes like ass in your mouth! Kobi may as well be Chuck Norris stuffed into a little plastic box fitted with silent brushless motors and built-in GPS, and dead set on doing all your yard work. All the time. All by himself.

Kobi is an autonomous lawn robot. He comes with 3 different modules that will equip him to take over your 3 least favorite yard tasks: mowing the lawn; raking the leaves; and shoveling the snow. With his GPS system and wireless communication abilities, Kobi will learn the perimeter of your property and any fixed obstacles within it, and then maintain a perfectly cut lawn by snipping by the fraction of an inch as it grows, and distributing the clippings as mulch to keep the grass healthy.

Similarly, as soon as leaves and snow start to fall, Kobi picks them up and blows them away, before large piles can accumulate. Kobi is even connected to weather forecasts so it gets the heads up on its own that winter, to the tune of 8 inches, is coming.

Kobi connects to an app so you can tell it what to do and when if you don't want to leave it to its own devices. Check out the Kobi website to learn more about the robot's technical specs and find out how to get on the waiting list for your own.
