Remember when 2020 sounded so futuristic? Well, we've made it, and even though we may not have flying cars, we do have the luxury of many technological advances including robots. Robots can do just about anything these days, including our household chores. Check out our favorite robot cleaners that will do your chores for you, so you have more time to do the things you love.

Let a robot mow your lawn while you take care of other yard work. The MowRo is a battery-operated, simple-to-use robot lawnmower that removes the need for spending any money on fuel, oil or cords. A 28-volt lithium-ion battery powers the motor, and the mower automatically returns to the charging station when the battery runs low. A super-quiet motor means you can mow while you sleep, and it runs on a 48-hour schedule to keep up with daily growth for a healthier, greener lawn.
