Sunlight-Seeking Planters
The PlantBot

{SummaryTitle}

Most indoor plants need to be placed in specific spots of your home in order for them to receive the sunlight they need to survive. With the design concept from Play Coalition, however, plants can be placed just about anywhere in the house.

Plantbot is a concept planter with legs that can walk on its own. The designers refer to the Plantbot’s motion as “Solar-Seeking Botanical Augmentation,” in which the robot’s programmed solar cells detect optimal sunlight and the planter then moves towards that spot for its daily dose of sunshine.
