So no, it doesn’t actually cut your lawn, but this is an awesome LEGO Mindstorms construct.

Ah, what would it be like to have a robotic lawn mower that would mow your lawn for your automatically?  Hmm, you sit back and laugh as the robot has to struggle to get the motor started, then just relax and sip lemonade while you watch the robot mow the lawn for you in nice neat rows.  Sure, it sounds great, until something breaks, things go horribly wrong, and the mower goes crazy! 
What could have happened?  Maybe it’s something with the program…

Fortunately, an alternate program is also provided that allows you to mow manually using the lever on the top of the handle. 
This mower is self-propelled and will drive forward for you while mowing, and it will even power through the turns for you.
