Hustler Zeon electric mower all set to eat your grass

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on April 3rd, 2009

Hustler Zeon electric mower all set to eat your grassThe Hustler Zeon is an all-electric lawnmower that has just come onto the market. No price yet, but we’re guessing it won’t be cheap. A full charge of 16 hours will give you 80 minutes of lawn eating time, and it’s silent since it’s electric. As a sweet bonus, it says Hustler on the side, so all your neighbors will think you won it by reading a skin mag.

You might notice that there´s no steering wheel, just two handles on each side of the seat, which will give you all of your steering. Top speed is seven miles per hour. It may not be the best looking lawn mower, but it beats pushing an old model.

Timeless Garden lets you grow grass, tell time

Timeless Garden lets you grow grass, tell timeWhy you would want to grow grass indoors just to have a clock, is anybody’s guess. Especially since almost every device these days has a clock. Who knows, maybe you just really love weeds indoors. If so, the Timeless Garden may be for you.

It’s powered by the chemistry between mud and metal, so that toxic batteries aren’t required. They describe it as “an indoor plant with a self-sustaining digital clock”.

The grass is greener on the Lawn PC

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2008

The grass is greener on the Lawn PCDesigner David Veldkamp created this futuristic concept PC he calls the LawnPC. The device would create all the power it needs from solar cells embedded in the grass that sits on top of the PC. The grass isn’t real grass, it’s actually made from natural cotton fabric that carries inkjet printed solar cells. The use of cotton makes the blades biodegradable, just like real grass. The idea is that hundreds of these blades can generate all the power the system needs at about 60 Watts per hour. The blades transfer energy to the battery plug-in at the bottom of each blade. The Lawn PC is also completely wireless.

All the electricity is generated by the machine. Which doesn’t even require a cooling fan. The natural air flow in between the lawn is enough to cool the system. All you have to worry about is placing the system near a window or a vent, where it can get all the light and air it needs. The lawn is removable, so it will also power your other electronic devices. Those devices will look like they do now, just with a blade of grass sticking out of them like an organic antenna.

The Mowercycle: Heart attack on three wheels

The Mowercycle: Heart attack on three wheels
Don’t get me wrong, this thing is awesome. Aside from being a great vehicle during a zombie attack, it also combines exercise with an eco-friendly way to mow the lawn. Problem is, if your lawn is larger this thing could be deadly. I mean, those old push mowers aren’t as easy to push around as they look. They tend to bind up a bit and resist if they aren’t well greased.

So, you’re pedaling away mowing your 16 acres, the hot sun beating down on you as you pant for breath. Then you get all faint and fall off because you’re a lard ass. What do you think happens next? I’ll tell you what happens. That’s when some lurking zombie gets on the Mowercycle and chops you up into pieces.

iRobot files Lawn Mowing Bot patent

iRobot files Lawn Mowing Bot patent
Our favorite makers of home robots, iRobot, won’t be satisfied until one of their creations kills us dead at home under the guise of cleaning or tidying up. One day your local police will have a special RV unit. That stands for Robotics Victim.

Anywho, iRobot has filed an iPatent for a lawn-mowing robot. It’s an 84-page filing with a variety of configurations, even an all-electric model and gas-electric hybrid. Some have acoustic and optical sensors that would seem to allow the robot to “avoid hard surfaces, water and other barriers”. Look, I’m on board with any bot you wanna put in my home. All I ask is that it’s aware of the fact that my heart pulled through my chest will kill me dead. Well, that and I want it to not be thrilled with that image.

‘Dynamizer’ does the yard work

‘Dynamizer’ does the yard work
This is how the future was supposed to be. While you are just sitting around laughing it up, your robot slave is busy doing all the gruntwork. Things like mowing the lawn for instance. This little guy seen in the accompanying video works his metal ass off, never complaining.

He’s entertaining to watch as he’s doing your chore. He even has to stop at one point to wipe the sweat from his brow. He clearly doesn’t get any respect. He just does his job. It’s all well and good until he runs into the doghouse.
