Plow or Snow Blow Your Driveway without Going Outside

by Stirling Matheson

We have robots that can do annoying chores for us right now. You can buy robots that vacuum for you, gutter-cleaning robots, pool cleaning robots, mopping robots, lawn-mowing robots and I’m sure there are many more. Obviously, there are some things that don’t exist yet, on account of liability, like hedge trimming robots, but why don’t we have a snow shoveling, plowing, or blowing robot?

Well, it’s more of an R/C truck than a robot, but this Kickstarter campaign from SuperDroid Robots promises to fix that arse-freezingly cold problem. Rather than having a back spasm or a heart attack by exerting yourself when it’s -10 degrees outside, sit indoors in a robe and slippers holding a controller and direct this bot.

That luxury doesn’t come cheap though. A DIY plow kit will run you $5,700 and a DIY blower will cost $6,200. Fully assembled versions are $7,200 and $8,500, respectively. For $2,000 you can fly to South Carolina and shoot the owners of their company with a paintball robot they made, and under that there’s a variety of double entendre tees with phrases like “Get Blown Remotely.” You could wear that under your jacket while shoveling the driveway.
