Hi group,
Does anyone know of robot (commercial or hobbyist) that will cut a
design in grass?  (like a peace symbol, flag, or radiation symbol)  I'm
not having any luck finding any 'bots like that on the 'net.

There are one or two robotic grass cutters around, they aren't cheap.
You could hack one of those to cut patterns, with a lot of work.

You haven't been looking very hard have you?  Jeesh, those things have been
around for at least 3 years now!  The more modern ones have sentience,
plasma-tronic brains and omega-lithium batteries that recharge on ambient
light.  You can program them by sketching out your desired design on a used
paper napkin, hold it up to an array of scanning optical sensors, then off
it goes!  Most of them incorporate side-scanning LIDAR to avoid objects and
can maitain a pattern tolerance of 5 or 6 attometers.

Good luck!
