This adorable little robot is designed to make sure its photosynthesising passenger is well taken care of. It moves towards brighter light if it needs, or hides in the shade to keep cool. When in the light, it rotates to make sure the plant gets plenty of light. It even likes to play with humans.

Oh, and apparently, it gets antsy when it’s thirsty.

The robot is actually an art project called “Sharing Human Technology with Plants” by a roboticist named Sun Tianqi. It’s made from a modified version of a Vincross HEXA robot, and in his own words, it’s purpose is “to explore the relationship between living beings and robots.”

I don’t care if it’s silly. I want one.


A spider that doesn’t freak me out

Holy crap, if it weren’t for the fact that my cats would have a field day eating them, I’d want twelve constantly roaming around my house.

Then again, amusing cat toy anyone? :)

VEDA2018 #21 – Frustration

Where I make a bed and rotate it! And have a kitty! And show off the latest damage to my phone. Woo!

VEDA2018 #20 – Quick Video
Warning: I didn’t put any kitties in this video. :(

VEDA2018 #19 – Quick Cooking Chat

In which I ramble a bit and include my successful hamburger story from… today.

VEDA2018 #15

There are two parts to this video.

If you’re here for the regular vlogging updates, that’s the first part.
I had a really nasty anxiety attack Saturday night / Sunday morning. While preparing for my planned VEDA, I ended up recording some of my recovery. It is kind of painful for me to show (I ended up crying a bit remembering the feelings while editing), I think it is important to show what others are dealing with, usually in silence. Feel free to skip the last parts if you don’t want to watch that.

VEDA2018 #13 – Travel and Games
Where I merge two videos together because my brain can’t focus enough on one topic?
