U.S. students have created an autonomous machine that not only cuts grass in a specified area, but uses the waste cuttings to power itself, saving you both time and money. The E-Mow is built upon the body of an electric toy car, but the clever vehicle is able to convert grass pellets into fuel, using a small biomass gasifier, a type of furnace that converts organic matter into gas. In the future, users of the robotic lawnmower will be able to program the machine by selecting an area to mow using Google Maps (pictured)...and tell the mower to avoid certain obstacles so flowerbeds are not cut down too.

Users of the lawnmower will not have to push it around their garden, as the useful robot is autonomous thanks to onboard GPS and proximity sensors. (View #5 of 6)

U.S. students have created an autonomous machine that not only cuts grass in a specified area, but uses the waste cuttings to power itself, saving you both time and money. The E-Mow is built upon the body of an electric toy car, but the clever vehicle is able to convert grass pellets into fuel, using a small biomass gasifier, a type of furnace that converts organic matter into gas. The grass pellets pass into a small gasifier (illustrated), where they are converted to gas and the resulting fuel is cooled, filtered and mixed with air. (View #4 of 6)

The E-Mow is built upon the body of an electric toy car, but the clever vehicle is able to convert grass pellets into fuel, using a small biomass gasifier, a type of furnace that converts organic matter into gas. The machine trims grass using a low-power electrical bar cutter (pictured), unlike many mowers that use a rotating blade. (View #3 of 6)

The E-Mow is built upon the body of an electric toy car, but the clever vehicle is able to convert grass pellets into fuel, using a small biomass gasifier, a type of furnace that converts organic matter into gas. The machine trims grass using a low-power electrical bar cutter and collects the grass snippets, which are funnelled into a hot and pressurised area where they are turned into dry grass pellets.

Love this pool on a raised up stone platform. The river rock edging is gorgeous too!

Grass and concrete "tile" around this backyard fireplace. I'd love to use that technique to create an outdoor chess set like the kind I played once on this trip to Australia. This farm we stayed at in the outback had all manner of games and activities, I suppose because the kids lived so far from town that they attended school via radio.

Wicked fun outdoor slide/stairs combo in a park!

Heated Outdoor Cat House --- For spoiled furbaby brats!!!

Fence window for dogs! Probably a pretty basic DIY if you're handy with a saw. Just cut the hole to fit an existing mini skylight window kit.
