No time to mow the lawn? Let a robot do it. With Roomba’s lawn-mowing robot, you’ll have neatly-trimmed grass without lifting a finger!

iRobot, the makers of the Roomba vacuum, has just unveiled its first autonomous lawn mower, the Terra. Using an app and wireless beacons set up around the perimeter of your lawn, the Terra will mow your lawn based on your preset pattern and schedule. The device can run for an hour on a simple charge and is completely weatherproof.

(Now, if they can pair this up with an Amazon Alexa skill, we’d be set. “Alexa, mow my lawn”—right?!)

The Terra will launch first in Germany. Although a beta program is set to roll out in the United States, there’s no word yet on when it will be available for purchase or how much.
