Walking Lanterns


You know what’s missing from your garden or lawn right now?

Of course, robots! Your garden is absolutely missing robots. Especially the sort with lots of legs and big lights on their heads.

People often have to get down on all fours to move lamps and lanterns from one spot on their garden to another. The Toro-bots get rid of the dirty work because they’ll get up and walk to your desired location with a few flicks of the remote control. They’re also equipped with infrared rangefinders that allows them to detect when someone is nearby (they’ll step off to the side if they sense they’re in someone’s way.) This means that eventually they can be given some level of centralized autonomous control.

Built on PhantomX quadrupeds, and each has been programmed with its own unique behavior and can reconfigure itself depending on the season, the presence or absence of a human observers — that develops structure in a generative way, creating a dynamic conversation between the elements in the garden. That just goes to show that even robots can have a green thumb!
