Robotic Plants to Save the Earth?
Researchers at the Korean Chonnam National University have developed a robotic plant which emits Oxygen. Perhaps a future solution to the rapid deforestation going on at present, the robot is around 4 feet tall, and unlike its biological counterpart, responds and interacts with your presence.
As people approach the “flower,” the robot bends towards the person and begins to bloom and slightly shake in response to the startled victim’s voice rising from a mute whimper to an alarmist howl. The robot also responds to music and light by dancing and opening and closing its petals in some kind of victory celebration.
