I am all for originality and innovation but I’m calling it like I see it… and this is some Stupid Shit!
As if the Roomba wasn’t stupid enough, now there is a Muwi… basically a Roomba for your lawn.
The Muwi won the Bronze in the IDEA: Design Awards but come on… not only do you know this thing isn’t really going to work, but your neighbors will too when your lawn is all sorts of wonky. Besides, it might as well be screaming “steal me” because you know it is going to ganked by the neighborhood kids once you put it out on the lawn… unless you stand outside guarding it, which is also stupid.
The way I see it, it only has two redeeming qualities:
- It produces awesome grass patties that look like felted frisbees (which the designer suggests can be used to make a chair… huh?).
- It slightly resembles the coveted Clocky alarm clock.
