Sun tianqi entrepreneur and Chinese roboticist have found a six-legged robot to carry and look after a potted plant on its back. The six-legged HEXA seeks out the suns when needed, retreats to the shade when it has had enough, and even performs a little dance to let you know it needs water. Tianqi’s robotics company vincross has developed the HEXA, and it is equipped with infrared and a 720p camera with night vision. Three motors are equipped for each leg and the robot-plant hybrid has 19 servos overall. HEXA’s plastic shell has been customized by replacing with a unique dual-layer ‘flowerpot’. According to Tianqi, the project was inspired by a dead sunflower which he saw sat in a shadow of an exhibition. If the plant would have been moved a little bit by taking a 30-feet walk out of the shadow to where the other sunflowers were, the flower would have been healthy. Generally, plants are passive no matter if they are being cut, bitten, or pulled from the earth, or when they lack sunshine, water, or are too hot or cold, they will hold still and take whatever is happening to them. They have the fewest degrees of freedom among all the creatures in nature. These are the default setting that nature gives to plants.
