Lawn Da Vinci: An Awesome Open-Source Remote-Controlled Lawn Mower #ArduinoMonday

Check out this impressive build from Blake Hodgson up on KCProto, via blog.arduino.cc.

So, you want to make your own remote controlled lawn mower like in the movie “Honey, I shrunk the kids” ?  You should.  This is a fun project that is very practical and makes mowing the lawn a lot more enjoyable.  You will learn a few new skills along the way that will help you be a better maker.

First, a disclaimer.  Robots are dangerous.  Lawn mowers are dangerous.  Robot lawn mowers are the danger of mowers times the danger of robots.  KC Proto is not responsible for any damage to anything living or inanimate. This project was possible because of the spirit of open source.  Pay anything you learn forward.  Suggestions on improvements are welcome.
