The world is dangerous enough as it is, what with robots and artificial intelligence and TikTok. We certainly don’t need our metal overlords who are planning to rise up against us in the robopocalypse to gain allies, yet human collaborator David Bowen wants to strike an alliance between robots and plants.
Thanks to the villainous work of vegetarians, plants have a grudge against us humans. And now they can fight back. His art installation appropriately called Plant Machete allows a plant to control the swinging machete arm through electrical signals transmitted through the leaves. You can see a video of this remorseless killer at Design Boom.
