The Little Prince is a concept for a robot that will help grow plants on Mars. Due to the much reduced solar irradiance as compared with Earth, more care is required to sustain life. So this guy has a little greenhouse built right in, and he can scuttle around trying to find the best growing conditions for whatever his passenger happens to be. There’s another picture and a video of him in action after the jump.
