Hate To Shovel? Plow In Your Pajamas With Remote Controlled Robot

With six wheels and a 52-inch-wide blade, this remote-controlled snowplow is designed to clear your drive while you stare wistfully out the kitchen window, thumbing the joystick.

The plow is powered by six 24-volt 127RPM electric motors and, according to the company Superdroid Robots, weighs almost 400 pounds.

While this seems like a pretty sweet setup, it comes with one major drawback: price. The robot will set you back $7,900, which will pay a lot of neighbor kids to clear the walk a heck of lot of times. —Sean McCoy
