Grass printer is cool computerized lawnmower.
Grass Printer provides a way for people to decorate their lawn with creative cutting. Graphics can be cut into the grass based on an image that is sketched onto the mower’s touchscreen. The mower works within an area framed by sensor markers.
Its blades are smaller than those on standard mowers, which allows for more rapid and accurate cutting. After the control system performs a series of calculations based on the sketch, small motors move the cutter shaft horizontally and vertically in accordance with the mower’s position within the sensor-defined area. Mowed grass is discharged at the rear.
This concept for a robotic lawnmower would allow users to program in custom graphics on its touchscreen interface, then uses special cutters to create designs in your grass. Advertisers would go nuts for these at sporting venues.
The design, by Professor Doh Han Young, proposes the autonomous lawnmower will have four sensors on its four corners that allow it to selectively trim an area. Using small sized blades for accuracy the Grass Printer’s tiny shaft-driving motors move the cutters horizontally and vertically for precision cutting.

Very cool, but how useful is this???
