This robot lawnmower can run Doom, so you can mow down demons at your next lawn party

If you find mowing your lawn to be a chore, one company has found a way to liven things up: by grafting classic 1993 game Doom onto a lawnmower. It brings a whole new meaning to the idea of mowing down your enemies.

The feature is coming to the Automower NERA series of mowers made by Husqvarna – which feature large screens that will display the game – and is set to launch on April 9, 2024. To be eligible, you just need to register on Husqvarna’s website and enter your mower’s serial number.

It’s one thing to load a game onto a lawnmower, but another thing entirely to play it. Husqvarna says you’ll be able to do that using the NERA mower’s display and controls. Specifically, you use the device’s control knob to turn left and right, and press the Start button to run forward. To fire your weapon and vanquish your enemies, you’ll need to press the control knob.
