FYI: Water my plants (please)

Researchers at Purdue University have created an app than can turn your phone into a robot command station. The phone becomes the eyes and brain for a robot, controlling its navigation and tasks. The user simply scans the QR code of the object it wishes to monitor, then sets their phone into the docking station and sends instructions for the object to vacuum, transport objects, water plants or do other tasks at home or in the workplace.
