Moving Plants: Did you ever seen a moving- walking plant? Your answer would be “no”! there is no plant or tree in the world that can walk…your answer is right..but soon with the help of humans plants can not only walk but also dance with you!
This is going to happen by a Chinese robotic scientist Tianqi Sun, the C.E.O. of robotics firm “Vincross”.
Tianqi calls his weird project “Sharing Human Technology with Plants”. This all began with a dead sunflower plant, in the year 2014 Tianqi was visiting a “sunflower plant exhibition”, there he found himself watching a dead sunflower plant! It was placed in shadow. He thought that if this plant could have moved 30 feet it could have joined his friends which were blooming in the sunlight…
But plants can not move, evolution has designed plants in such a way, whether you cut them, burn them they will not do anything. This is the basic setting of plants done by Nature.
He thought every other organism has its basic default settings…We humans can not go in depth of oceans, can not fly above clouds, for several centuries we have followed these nature rules and remained limited in our boundaries, But with the help of Science and Technology, we began to break these rules in last century and gone where no one has gone before.
Tianqi asked did plants also want to cross their limits? No one knows the answer except the plants themselves.
Tianqi wants to share this “Human Endeavour” and Technology with plants! For this he joined a plant with his creepy Tarantula shaped robotic rover “Hexa”.
The software mod of hexa robot is designed in such a way that it cares the plant …it moves the plant in sunlight and shadow as per need. It also waters the plants whenever needed. This plant robot can shake hands with you and can even dance when it feels happy.
It is a bizarre feeling for the people who love their plants to see them walking and moving in sunlight and shadow.
See below interesting Gifs of moving plant, provided by Tianqi in Vincross forum.
Did you remember the “Ents” of “The Lord of the Rings”. Who knows this is the Beginning of the Ents, Humans may create a new species “Ents” by mixing Robotics and Trees!
The Future of your planet may be follow this course
