Solar-Powered I-Shovel Automatically Removes Snow

If you liked Husqvarna’s robotic solar hybrid lawnmower, then you’ll love its winter companion: the I-Shovel. This patent-pending device automatically detects snow accumulation and can clear a 4,000 square foot driveway on a single battery charge.

The product’s website is a little fuzzy on details about how long it takes to charge its battery, but more information should be available closer to the I-Shovel’s release date next year.
