Down Time Technologies
I recently added a wheelbarrow attachment to my lawnmower. It is an attachment that is very easy to add or remove. Please click on the "A.A. Lawnmower tab above to see it in action.
Due to the growing population of people who want to live by themselves, as they age or become handicapped, we eagerly help them achieve that goal. We constantly put ourselves in their shoes and come up with ideas to assist in making independence for all a reality. Our company is built on the need to help people remain independent for as long as they desire. This is our core mission and we take this responsibility to heart every day. Please be sure to click on the links above to the right, to look at just some of our inventions. Thank you for your interest.

Our Robotic Lawnmower is a “Top of the Line” product. We have spared no expense to develop this with the best material and craftsmanship available anywhere in the world. This is completely battery operated; no petroleum and no harmful materials are used to manufacture this. Safety is of a huge importance to us, we use position sensors to assure it will never get close to any person, animal or inanimate objects. It also, has a built in range and low battery switch, which will shut it down if it ever gets out of range, so, the lawnmower will never be out of your control and harm anyone or anything. It comes with a trickle charger, which will never over charge the batteries. There is also an optional “Dog house” this is a small building you can put outside, and back the lawnmower in, it will then begin charging all by itself, using the same trickle charging method, just mentioned.
The lawnmower has a 2) built in on board streaming web cams, this allows you to see everything it sees, including a rear facing camera when you need to see behind you. You can view this over any smart phone, tablet, or smart TV in your home. We are working on a newer version that will allow you to view and operate it from across town or across the country over your cell service as well, this should be available in 2019.
The lawnmower uses 2) 12 volt DC marine batteries you will be able to get from almost any automotive store, and replace yourself if you wish.
I have been testing GPS on this but as of yet, it isn't accurate enough to be safely used. I have also been testing 3 axis system which is much more accurate. This is still in the infancy stages as the biggest drawback to it, would be line of site axis. With this in mind you would have to have them setup in several strategic locations.
I am also using VR googles. This allows you to walk around, lay down, what ever position you wish to view the live on-board streaming video.
The lawnmower has additional attachments you will be able to purchase, such as a leaf bagger, lights and even a trailer among other things we haven’t even thought of yet.
We, here at DTT are always on the cutting edge, always open to other ideas on how to improve people’s lives, if you have an idea, please let us know, we will be happy to look into it.

The robotic snow blower is also a top of the line product. Again, this is because we put so much into this product. It is easy to put so much of yourself into something when you believe in it so much, and you can actually see it helping people. That is what makes us proud to be here.
This robotic snow blower uses 2) 12 volt deep cycle marine batteries, which can be bought at almost any automotive store and easily installed. There are a couple automatic shut down switches to keep this completely safe, there is an “out of range” shutdown, in case the snow blower ever gets out of range, it will shut down, to keep from causing unknown damage to itself or anything else, there are also sensors to keep it from getting to close to people. Unlike, all gas snow blowers, if something gets stuck in the blades, you no longer have to put your hand in to get the item unstuck, this is very dangerous and has been proven fatal. Now, all you do, is to reverse the blade motor using the remote, easy peasy.
The snow blower comes with a trickle charger, which will never over charge the batteries. There is an optional “Dog house” this is a small building you can put outside, and back the snow blower in, it will then begin charging all by itself, using the same trickle charging method, just mentioned.
The snow blower has a 2) built in on board streaming web cams, this allows you to see everything it sees, including a rear facing camera when you need to see behind you.

I recently discovered one of my first version of the robotic lawnmower was posted on another site. I have no idea what my lawnmower has to do with autonomous cars, but right in there with some of the best and most expensive cars, they have a small mention of the lawnmower. Please visit this site and check it out. The link is right below, titled "Autonomous Archives"
From the very beginning, the first concept of having a remote control device, I have been on an inconceivable adventure. I have been documenting most of the things I have done, the mistakes as well as the achievements. I will be putting this in a book, titled "Dawn of the robots in their own words" I hope you pick up a copy.
Here at DTT we are always trying to make our products more usable for anyone, no matter their limitations. We are currently working to make the remote control, battery operated snowblower or lawnmower even more usable by adding a mind control device to it. This is "MindWave" technology; using this, you will be able to control the snowblower, by just thinking about it. While others are outside in a blizzard following behind a loud out of control snowblower, you will be inside, sitting on your recliner, watching live streaming video on your huge smart TV while just thinking about doing the driveway. How awesome is that. Please watch the below video, but remember, this is only the start. Thank you,
Please email me with any comments or suggestions. I am eager to hear from you. I would also love it if you would let me know if this is a product(s) you would be interested in buying. This is just a survey to let me know if these products are worth proceeding with. Thank you, and please don't hesitate to email me. For best response and to make sure your emails don't go in to my spam folder, please put "robots" in the subject line.
I am also interested in anyone who can help me on the business end and/or financially. I have the patented inventions, just doesn't appear to be going anywhere.
Update; I just discovered a young man from M.I.T. has claimed he invented the first remote control snowblower. as many videos as I have on YouTube and all over, I am confident he was stealing my invention. I hope that anyone who sees it, lets him know he is not the first, and on top of that, he can't manufacture and sell it, as I have a patent on it. Just sayin.
I just posted my snowblower on kickstarter. If anyone feels like this is a great product, please help me get it out there by going to my page and contribute as much as you can safely spare. Any amount of money will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you from DDT and John. Appreciate you. Here is the link.
A few months ago I received a call from Erin at shark tank. She said they would love to get me on their show. I jumped so high, almost went through the roof. She said there are just a few preliminary questions.
1) Are you a US citizen? and of course my answer was "Yes"
2) Are you currently under any legal issues with your or your company? Again, my answer was a resounding "No"
3) Have you ever had a felony conviction? Um, what? where does that question come from, but, "Yes, 41 years ago"
That was the end of the conversation. I was so sad, my face dropped like a rock. So, today I made a little skit / spoof of Shark tank, hope you enjoy it.
