It looks terrific. I hope it's more successful than the solar mower, and
that will depend on the asking price. I've sent them an email asking the
relevant questions and will post them when available.

I also noted the robot vacuum cleaner under development, as it happens I've
been constructing one of my own while I've been in a lull with my Mowbot

I'll also be posting my boundary-wire system in the next few weeks, it's
not as spectacular as I'd planned but I discovered I am incapable of
winding 2 coils the same :-(
