Muwi Concept Lawnmower Turns Waste Grass into Playthings

Illustration for article titled Muwi Concept Lawnmower Turns Waste Grass into Playthings

The electric-sheep lawnmower may have tickled your fancy, but this Muwi concept mower from designer Yuli Sung will have you scratching your head. The concept's roughly the same as the sheep: It automatically assesses the grassy areas, and then cuts the lawn without supervision required. Cunningly, it grabs the grass cuttings inside where they won't lie around setting off people's hay fever. But then it does something strange... it compacts the cuttings into toys. Scratching yet? The second image makes it clearer.

Okay, so the ball could be considered more a plaything, while the grass disks are perhaps more suited for piling up as ad-hoc lawn chairs. Although there's always the possibility of a game of giant grass Frisbee... How many sneezes and streaming eyes would that set off, I wonder? Those grass "bails" would easy to pick up and chuck onto the compost pile too. Nice lateral thinking here, and for once it's a concept that I'd love a manufacturer to get to grips with for real.

I love the complex word usage thing. Look, we should have a word for complex idea compression into words! English is SO linear. We have to spell every single thing out. With the exception of words like "love".

The Russians are particularly notorious for having super complex words. Because they are (or were) a very poetic culture, they compressed very complex emotions into single words. I can't remember where I read this concept. I believe it was the Unbearable Lightness of Being by Gibran. There is a word in there describing the feeling of standing by a lake remembering a past loved one. Holy crap!
