Auburn Engineers Invent Roomba For Your Yard

Need Input.

Auburn engineers are on the verge of revolutionizing Saturday afternoons.

Eighteen mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering students from “Auburn’s Autonomous Lawnmower Team” recently —and robotic-ally—trimmed turf at the ION Robotic Lawnmower Competition, which apparently exists, and is held annually in Beavercreek, Ohio— the Lazy Husband Capitol of The World!

Check out Moe going Johnny 5 on Cater Lawn.
