Robotic plant finds the sun, stays alive despite your neglect

If your poor, mistreated plant had legs, it would walk itself in front of the sun and out from the dank corner that it sits, slowly drying up and dying. Unfortunately for your plant, evolution hasn't decided that legs are a priority for plants. Fortunately for it, however, we live in the age of robots, so you can just go ahead and finish the job that evolution started.

There's not a lot of info on this plant-bot, but one can only assume that it's designed to follow the sun around a room and, perhaps in a later model, water itself as well. It'll free us lazy, shiftless types of the responsibility of plant ownership, allowing plants to keep themselves alive without us having to worry about periodic watering and moving. The future is now!
