Would you ever want to get into the business of selling robotic lawn mowers?

Is there a service somewhere to offer robotic lawn mowing as a lawn care service provider?

Robotic lawn care available in Valley (http://www.postcrescent.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070722/APC03/707220533/1888/APCbusiness) - Fran Schmidt, 37, wanted to spend more time with his family, especially in summer, when wife Tracy, 35, a school counselor, and their three children were home.

The Grand Chute resident began to look for ways to pare down the 1 hours that he regularly spent mowing his nearly acre-sized lawn.

"I was looking into buying a larger riding mower, when I came across robotic lawnmowers and contacted the North American representative," Schmidt recalled.

The entrepreneurial couple had always wanted to own a business and had looked into several different options and franchises.

The Schmidts launched BadgerBots LLC, a sales dealership of LawnBott, a partnership between a Japanese and an Italian company, in January.

"I can sell anywhere in the U.S., but we are showing the product throughout Wisconsin," Schmidt said.

I would be afraid one would mow over a small child and then I'd get sued. I guess when you have small kids you think about stuff like that. Interesting invention though.
On a side note, check out this SNL skit called "Woomba". Its a take off of the automatic vacuum called the Roomba. I laughed my butt off.
