Scientists have built a hybrid robot that follow directions of a plant's natural signals.

The plant-hybrid robot, called Elowan, is built by MIT researchers and uses the plant's natural signals to trigger movements in the robot underneath, Cnet reported.

As part of the experiment, the researchers connected silver electrodes to the plant and placed lights on either side of the plant. Following its natural signal, the plant moved towards the light source with the help of the robot. (ANI)
