Automower Solar Hybrid

We've been looking at this thing and reading about for a little while now -- and it is still inexplicably amusing.

It looks like Kit from Knight Rider ... but it also looks like something my little brother drove around the backyard when he was 3.

But it's a lawnmower. And it's pretty far from a good old-fashioned push-mower.

It's an automatic, solar hybrid lawn mower.

It's way cooler than the gas-guzzling emission-spewing models that are out there right now ... but still, we have a hard time believing it's better for the environment than a push-version.

In what context would a mower like this beat out a push mower? What do you think?
