The Lawn Da Vinci is an innovative DIY lawn mower that blends together the advantages of open source engineering with the undeniable convenience and efficiency associated with remote-controlled contraptions.

This particular DIY lawn mower is equipped with a motor driver that is capable of directly picking up a signal from the remote-control receiver, with an Arduino micro-computer responsible for handling the whole operation. An interesting advantage with this DIY lawn mower is the fact that users can shut the motors off in a variety of ways. They can either turn the remote control off, push a button on the lawn mower or push a separate key fob.

This DIY lawn mower makes for a great summer project for remote-control enthusiasts.
