Clear the sidewalks from the comfort of your toasty home.

If you're sick and tired of the constant snowstorms this winter (and especially the shoveling that comes after), it might be time to invest in a remote-controlled solution. 

Behold the Remote Control Six-Wheel Drive Snow Plow, already built and ready to ship from robotics firm SuperDroid Robots.

The 393-pound robot comes with a 52-inch wide blade, perfect for sidewalks and driveways. SuperDroid Robots actually demoed the product on Youtube back in November. But the North Carolina-based company was finally able to fully demonstrate its capabilities last week, when a decent layer of snow fell on the state. 

In the new video below, you can see the robot plowing through the company's entire parking lot. 

Laziness won’t come cheap though. The snow plow robot will cost you $7,900. Hiring teenagers around the neighborhood might still be the way to go.
