TelegardenJuly 15th, 2007
The Telegarden is a system that allows a living garden tended by a robot manipulator to be operated via anyone on the WWW with a desktop (or laptop!) computer and modem. We had three major objectives in constructing it.
1 To integrate natural, organic elements with robots, so that some parts were fixed and others would grow, change and decay;
2 To create a work of art in the interplay of natural beauty and technology, and
3 As an experiment in electronic community where web surfers can gather and interact amongst themselves and with a real environment.
