Many for sure are familiar with crop circles, designs left on a field that are formed from flattened crops. Soon, one can recreate similar patterns on lawns and gardens just through a lawn mower.
A new type of lawn mower called Grassffiti, made by researchers from the University of Tokyo, lets users draw on an app various designs that it can then leave on the grass it rolls on. Creating patterns on the app is quite similar to making pixel art. Grassffiti integrates a roller and 16 servomotors. The former has a rotary encoder while the latter have rods and make sure the mower’s direction is correct, following the user’s desired pattern.
Besides lawn and garden aesthetics purposes, this lawn mower is perceived to be useful in big grass sports fields. Currently, it is not yet available for sale or for public use, but having this innovation could pave way for similar technologies and attract more attention to the lawn mowers line.
