Japanese Snowplow Robot

Where I live, we need one of these--right now. It's an autonomous, snowplowing robot with a built-in GPS and video cameras for eyes. It "eats" snow then expels it out the back in blocks, to be used as alternative coolant for various things.

I want a Japanese family to adopt me so I can enjoy all of their robots.

Boy do we need one of these where I live. I just got done shoveling (how low tech :P) our walkway and mailbox. But I don't think that thing could handle our driveway:-)

I only shoveled enough to pile up a snowmound for LNE to climb. Yes, it works on snow, but almost exclusively in "swimming mode", using the flippers. Fun to watch, and the treads came back in packed with ice :-).

if it ever snows that much here(or at all) then we are in a ice age.
