Seed Planting: Imitating Nature

In a short video (2 m 30 s) from the journal Nature, a wooden "robot" drills a seed into the ground, a device that might possibly be useful in future in using seed carriers dropped by aircraft in remote areas for land regeneration. 

The robot has a basis and inspiration in biology - self-burying seeds - a case of technology imitating nature.
