This plant is able to drive itself towards light

Plants could soon be moving autonomously towards light using their own internal electrical signals. Researchers at MIT have placed a plant on a wheeled platform which allows it to scoot towards light whenever it needs to. Using its own electrically active system, the plant is interfaced with a robotic extension that augments its ability to move. Take a look at a video showing the “cybernetic lifeform” in action.
