Toronto, December 20 (ANI): Experts have developed a robot for snow shoveling.
The I-Shovel Autonomous Robotic Snow Shovel gets activated the moment snow begins to fall.
The machine supplemented with a digital brain and a plastic scoop works until snowing stops.
Users can customize it with bent handles, polycarbonate blades and even a wheel.
Flawed approach to the task of shovelling snow has been proved to be physically hazardous in the past, so, the new machine comes as a relief.
"Technique is important. But most people don't know anything about it. They just go out there and start flailing away," the Globe and the Mail quoted Andrew Drewczynski, an ergonomist at the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, as saying. (ANI)
