Shades of "Silent Running." The 5-legged Prospero is a clever bot that is being used as an Autonomous Micro Planter. It joins with others to make a swarm that can plant seeds, tend them and harvest the finished product. Controlled by a Parallax Propeller chip mounted on a Schmart Board, it can walk autonomously while avoiding objects. Prospero can also communicate with other robots and can carry fertilizer and herbicides in its tummy.
