Better than Ginger: Remote Control Lawn Mowers

First off, I apologize for having started what was to be a series of technology posts back in January and then never getting around to do another one. I hope to remedy that by doing these every month or so, starting with this one.

Second, I'd just like to say that brilliant ideas aren't necessarily radically new ones. As George Carlin once said, "If you nail together two things that have never been nailed together before, somebody out there will buy one". In this case, it is the merging of a remote control vehicle with a lawn mower, resulting in the RCLM2006S. The concept is so bloody obvious that you really have to wonder why these suckers aren't in mass production. Oh yeah, they currently cost $2300 a pop, that's why.

But just like DVD players and flatscreen displays, let's hope these become real common real soon, and thus the price goes down. Because we folks down here in Florida sure could use an affordable model we can pick up at the local Home Depot.
