Here is a robot plant hybrid driven by a plant’s natural signals toward the light. Elowan has a robotic base and reads signals from the plant using silver electrodes attached to it. Light triggers the plant’s natural signals, which leads to the robot moving closer to the lamp.

The above video from MIT Media Lab shows how it works.
