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.

Engadget reports:

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.
