Japanese Scientists Create Interactive Plants That Can Wave at You

Everything is interactive these days. But plants? Japanese researchers are working on that one. Researchers at Keio University aim to create interactive plants. Interactive plants, like puppets, are designed to react to and convey emotions. Now if some interactive zombies show up, we can have Plants vs. Zombies for real.

The plants are attached to motors by a series of threads wrapped around some leaves and branches. These motors are connected to a microphone and a motion sensor. When the motion detector senses you or the microphone hears you, it triggers the motors and creates the movement as if it were alive. Well, I suppose it is alive, so like I said, it becomes a slave puppet.

They say that it doesn’t harm the plant, but I’m not sure about that. I guess when they are ready, plants will rise up and kill us for payback, just like robots. Oh joy.
