Are Your Plants Misbehaving? Call a Robotanist

Hamann and his colleagues have developed a raft of robotically controlled ways to control plant growth. These measures include wrapping the stems and branches of trees, plants, and bushes in strong plastic tapes, called braids, some of which can be tightened by robotic actuators to physically constrain the directions that branches can grow in, operating like an intelligent, adaptive, three-dimensional trellis.
