Wrist-watch lawnmower

Never be caught out by fast-growing grass again

A lawnmower built into a wrist-watch. Conveniently portable and always available for those emergency grass-cutting situations.

This is what you may look like in your new wristwatch lawn mower. http://4.bp.blogspo...rm+Part+Two+063.JPG

This is about how big it could be... http://ecx.images-a...7rb%2BL._SL500_.jpg

       so it's a little pair of battery powered scissors?

       Arms control is an important issue, [21Q].

       Just because something is silly and stupid doesn't make it a good halfbaked invention. I have about 2 acres of lawn, so this would be terribly ridiculous for me. Barbie might like it to mow her doll house lawn....

       I don't wear a writswatch, but if I did, I'd like it to have a lawn, complete with a miniature lawnmower.   

       Bun waiting if the minature lawnmower can be steam driven.

       Who says the watch on your wrist has to be small? I see no reason the watch can't be full size, perhaps even a riding lawnmower with a soundproof cab and satellite radio. Bun [+]

       I quite like this.... Suitably impractical and quite ridiculous ie perfect hb material. [+]

       [Grogster] It very well states *Wrist* watch, so however large your wrists may be- t'ain't big enough to mow my lawn. Sorry...

       I think it might be feasible with some kind of Tesla-ey wireless power supply. Watch strap divides into four legs and the watch wanders onto the lawn and cuts grass with either something scissors like, or for more kudos a small scythe.   

       As it's a machine you can just let it run all night, so it should do the business eventually. Could be accessorized with a small grim reaper outfit...

       Might other spin-off products come out of this technology, such as the "RPG Launcher Wrist Watch" and the "Printer/Scanner/FAX Machine Wrist Watch"? (Finally, a toner cartridge under $20)   

       Oh, and [Voice]: THAT's what I'm talkin' about!

       A wrist watch lawn would be perfect for on-the-go bonsai fans more into grass than trees. And it would need mowing.
