Husqvarna unveiled a new robotic lawnmower that has a GSM phone integrated to send SMSes to you when it wants to talk. I am sure you can hook it up to a Twitter account with some DIY hacking: "Just started to mow the lawn", "Still mowing", "I think the grass is greener than yesterday", "I'm going to recharge now", "I hate mowing the lawn",...

The new Husqvarna Automower 260 ACX is bigger and faster than its siblings and equipped with GSM technology that sends a text message (SMS) to the caretaker’s cell phone if it needs assistance. (E.g. it fell on its back or just cut up the neighbor's cat.)
The Husqvarna Automower 260 ACX is battery driven, equipped with two NiMH batteries with a total capacity of 6Ah and 18V voltage. The cutting capacity is 250 m2 (2700 square ft) per hour. The cutting time is 60 minutes, after which it returns to the charging station by itself to recharge for 40 minutes before setting out to cut again. This large lawnmower has five pivoting razor blades, compared to three on the smaller models, bringing the cutting width to 32 cm (12.6 inches) and a cutting height that ranges from 20-60 mm (0,8-2,4 inches).

The recommended retail price for Automower 260 ACX is 4 000 EUR (~$5,200).
