This Autonomous Robot Will Do Your Yard Work Year-Round

Temperatures are dropping, and for many of us, that means it's time to put the lawn mower away and break out the leaf blower instead. Soon, we'll clear the last few leaves, just in time for the snow to fall. Welcome to back-breaking shoveling sessions, or if you're lucky, some monotonous snow blowing in the cold.

But next year, a single robot can handle your yard work throughout all of the seasons.

Today The Kobi Company is introducing the world's first 3-in-1 autonomous robot that can mow the lawn, clean up leaves, and remove snow.

We spoke with the company's co-founders, CEO Andrew Ewen and CTO Steven Waelbers. They met each other while working together at a financial institution in Belgium. Like so many innovative startups, The Kobi Company began while a couple of smart people chatted casually over a few beers. Waelbers had studied theoretical physics and was working at a bank, but in his spare time he built robots, drones, and other electronic devices. Ewen, an experienced entrepreneur with sales and marketing experience, helped push Waelbers to turn his hobby into a business.
