This adorable little robot is designed to make sure its
photosynthesising passenger is well taken care of. It moves towards
brighter light if it needs, or hides in the shade to keep cool. When in
the light, it rotates to make sure the plant gets plenty of light. It
even likes to play with humans.

Oh, and apparently, it gets antsy when it’s thirsty.

The robot is actually an art project called “Sharing Human Technology with Plants” by a roboticist named Sun Tianqi. It’s made from a modified version of a Vincross HEXA robot, and in his own words, it’s purpose is “to explore the relationship between living beings and robots.”
