Robots to grow plants on Mars


Now that we are almost certain that in the next few centuries Earth will run out of ” green”, its now Mar’s turn. Designers have already started planning on ideas/ designs for life on the red planet. This is actually good, considering that anything can happen anytime, whether it be a war or a natural disaster. The green house robots called Le Petit Prince, are specifically designed to keep the plants safe while scavenging for more resources at the same time. Smart!

Le Petit Prince was designed by Martin Miklica and is a finalist in the Electrolux Design Lab 2009. I wonder how an army of these robots will actually look like? Fun or scary??
