Researchers created a plant-based robotic arm by connecting a Venus flytrap plant equipped with soft electrodes
metal structure and telling it to grab things wirelessly.

Scientists have shown that flytraps on Venus plant can be snapped shut on command, turning them into biological robots that can be controlled wirelessly.

Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is a carnivorous plant that catches its prey, such as flies, by wrapping circular leaves around the prey. The edges of the leaves are covered with fine hairs that generate electrical impulses when the insect touches them – a burst of electricity that causes the trap to close in just 0.1 seconds.
