The Darwinian Plant Pruner

Evolve or die, this quote defines how different organisms compete to survive.  This quirky device shows how better genes could go far.  The Natural Deselection lets plants compete against each other.  It consists of sensors and mechanized shears dangerously touching each of the plants.

The aim is simple:  The first plant that grows to a specified height is spared from being cut off.  If inferior genes prevented other plants from growing taller, then these plants do not deserve to multiply.

Imagine that theory being applied on humans.  Scary…
