An iRobot Lawnmower

The robot lawnmower market could use a good shake-up, and iRobot has long been rumored to be looking into the space.

The FCC recently gave iRobot permission to wirelessly map our yards, which is a much better approach than putting stakes all over the yard that keeps robot lawnmowers out of trouble.

In all honesty, Santa probably won't be delivering this in 2016 either, but even a simple acknowledgement from iRobot that a robot lawnmower is in the works will do.
