I will update this later. Lady Bug themed lawn mower robot has a friendly look and interactive personality the whole family can enjoy. A simple color scheme and accessory can change the theme to a Yard Bee or Yard Beetle.

Automatically mow the lawn
Portable music
Audio/ Video Recording and Streaming Security when not mowing
Mower mode can be deactivated for interactive play with the whole family.

The goal is to make the Tesla of the lawn robot community and usher in a new age of outdoor technology to the United States that has been more slowly adopting that other countries.

This project will be available for 3d printed from files on thingiverse and I will also load them here. The first files are bulk and unrefined and not split up into smaller pieces for 3d printing yet.

Hello Mike! So this design will have 4 cutters. The first three are edging cutters which I am thinking will be similar to a weed eater and plastic fold back blades alternating. The main cutter will be the same height under the main body made up of 4 - 6” razor blades. I am sure I will experiment with a few different styles to see what works best.  Perimeter wire is the first go to buy I would really like to move to a gps rtk geofence once everything is together.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Looking forward to this one! Are you planning to use buried perimeter wire to keep the ladybug in the yard? What's the plan for the cutting mechanism, single spinning blade like traditional consumer mowers?
