Had enough of pushing a heavy lawnmower across your grass when you have better things to do with your weekends? The flowCut solarmower  concept tackles this laborious task by using sunlight. All you have to do is leave the flowCut on your lawn, let it soak up the sun, and the photovoltaic panel  will power the engine and rotary blade, allowing you to put your feet up and relax.
The flowCut detects when to turn and stop with the use of a laser sensor at the front and rear. It also tackles the task of feeding the lawn by collecting rainwater in a compartment filled with natural grass nutrients. With the flowCut lawnmower , the grass is always greener!
