I-Robot Plans to Attach Deadly Spinning Blade to Autonomous Robot

Ok, am I only only person that thinks robot lawnmowers are a truly terrible idea? According to Gorobotics.net, that's exactly what the Roomba's creators are doing.

The 84 page filing has several potential designs for robotic lawnmowers listed - electric, gasoline, Roomba-like, different cutting systems, navigation systems, etc.

(emphasis mine)

I am convinced that I-Robot is gleefully plotting our demise.
