Sleepy Mac Posted January 28, 2006 Share Posted January 28, 2006 I was sitting on my balcony this morning, having a merry old chat with my flat mate. When all of a sudden, I had it. Can a vehicle be built out of organic materials (preferably still alive); given intelligence via genetic programming and/or molecular computers. Then given locomotion by the intelligence in said organic materials, (probably some kind of plant, built/grown to purpose). What is the most likely form of motion from an ordinarily stationary life form, i.e. a tree. Is it potential energy stored in curled limb/s around a central axis, to give forward motion to wheels within the structure of the vehicle. Or could energy be tapped from the plants own resources? I haven't had much experience in this subject, so I hand it over to you, the science community that has advanced our technologies thus far. Perhaps I can help with the next step. By the way, I'm not sure if I should morally object to my own idea. It is a tad too close to playing God for me. Meh, we're only human, what do we really expect to achieve.
