A Garden Hose with an Electronic Brain

The RoboReel Water certainly isn’t your $30 garden center special. The contraption has a shipping weight of 85 pounds and puts a 100- or 150-foot hose reel in a spherical motorized turret that sits in a wheeled frame. Standing knee high, it looks like a green Death Star on legs. The chief feature is that with a press of a button behind the watering nozzle, an electric motor quietly and smoothly winds the hose back into the housing.
