Planter will find the sun for its plants

This chair-like robot consists of a planter with robotic legs and some circuitry to detect sunlight levels in the room. When the robot finds the brightest spot it scurries on its legs over in that direction in order to give the plant the most exposure. This reminds us a bit of the “Photosynthesis Robot” by FutureFarmers, although this one would probably be a more manic version of the project.
