Miimo and you.
by Andrew MacGregor

The Honda Miimo is a Roomba for nature's carpet... ie: grass. When a reconnaissance robot visits Earth, it's drawn to the compact lawnmower because of its smart features. It also likes the 2,100 RPM motor under the bonnet, but panics when the Miimo goes too close to the pool. In fact, it's the clumsy probe droid that knocks the barbecue into the water.

As is so often the way, the human is none the wiser about what the robots are up to. He is smart enough to use the dock function on his phone, which sends the advertised lawnmower to sleep and ends the droid's good-natured invasion. If the latter had to be honest, Earth would be better with Miimos, not humans, in charge.
