Bioleta Mata

Think about mobile plants.

What if plants could look for light or shadow depending on the weather and their necessities?

What if plants could scape from fires?

What if plants could accompany you all over your house?

What if plants could perform in art installations?

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Bioleta Mata is a plant equipped with a simple, autonomous vehicle for indoor environments. Bioleta will soon decide by its own when to get sun light and water, and will run away from fire and other hazards.
