Welcome the first student to Robot College.
Syracuse University has loaded up its roster with a new addition. It's called the Spider and its a remote-control grass cutting robot.
According to Syracuse.com:
It's used to mow the steepest hills, according to Jim Miller, director of SU's physical plant. In an SU video, Miller said the decision behind the purchase was worker safety on the steep, sometimes slippery banks.
If you're thinking this is a great way to mow the lawn while sitting on your deck having a beer, you might want to think twice, though. Similar mowers start at $15,000.
Watch the Spider spin its web of grass clippings right here.
Looks exactly like the Robot College we've always envisioned.
