"Scientists at the University of Southern Denmark have unveiled the Casmobot
robotic lawnmower, which is operated using a Nintendo Wii remote. "
It's for the children. Well, teen-agers mostly...
Great, another way for them to avoid any physical exertion whatsoever.
In about 1969 or so, give or take a couple years. A family a
couple blocks away from me got a doodad called "Mowbot". I
can remember roughly what it looks like, but don't have a
lot of information. There was some kind of ground loop, and
the mower went in random patterns. Rechargable.
On my lawn, an outdoor Roomba like that would be stranded on its back
spinning its wheels in ten minutes, like a bad turtle cartoon. If kids
or dogs are around, you couldn't leave it untended anyway.
There was something like that that ran on a laid out loop on the lawn but
it was for watering the lawn.
It would be fun to see one of these Bot mowers mowing over the track lines
and water hoses. Can you see it firing the hose nozzle through the
neighbors windshield or possibly a passing patrol car? Cop thinks they are
being assulted. Takes out the Bot with a .45
I thought of making mine RC, I have the radio and reciever, it wouldnt
be hard but real strong servos would cost bucks, but there is a big
risk of a runaway machine, something fails or range is lost, Ive had
my RC stuff "runaway" at full speed.
