Husqvarna turns robotic lawnmowers into gaming consoles

Husqvarna turns robotic lawnmowers into gaming consoles

Der Rasen ist frisch gestutzt und der teure Mähroboter fristet für die kommenden Tage ein sinnloses Dasein in der Garage? Im Falle des Husqvarna Nera This will no longer be the case in the future. If you don't want to chase the robotic garden assistant across the lawn, you can repurpose it and use it as a gaming controller if necessary. It sounds strange, but it's true. The manufacturer is taking advantage of an old joke in the Internet community to launch a funny marketing campaign for its robotic lawn mower.
Seit Jahren bringen Technik-Fans den 1993 erschienenen Ego-Shooter “Doom” von id Software auf allen nur erdenklichen Geräten mit Mikroprozessor und Bildschirm zum Laufen. Unter anderem ballerten sich Zocker bereits auf einem Taschenrechner, einem smarten Heizungsthermostat oder einem Drucker durch die Korridore des Klassikers. Daraus entstand das Internet-Meme “Can it run Doom?“, which raises a not entirely serious question about whether “Doom” works on the most ridiculous devices. Husqvarna will soon be able to officially answer this question for its robotic lawnmower.

Software-Update im April 2024

Im Rahmen des Mobile World Congress (26. bis 29. Februar 2024 in Barcelona, Spanien) stellt das Unternehmen ein Software-Update For Husqvarna Nera. This brings “Doom” to the small screen of the lawn mower with the blessing of license holder Bethesda. It is controlled using the on and off buttons on the mower. Husqvarna had already introduced the option for the first time at the DreamHack Winter 2023 gaming event. The response was so great that they now want to officially bring the game to their lawnmower. However, if you want to have the supposed fun, you only have a limited window of time.
Das Update erscheint laut Hersteller am 9. April 2024 und lässt sich über die Automower-Connect-App für iOS und Android auf dem Roboter installieren. Interessierte User können sich jetzt schon dafür registrieren. The game will then be available until September 9, 2024, when Husqvarna ends the campaign and pulls the plug on the blow-up lawnmower game with another update. You probably won't have much fun playing on the small screen and with the primitive control options. But it should definitely be enough to get a laugh at your next garden party.
