Caterpillar eats message into leaf, heralded as green printer


This caterpillar printer, if you can call it that, is sorta tech-related, depending on what your definition of “is” is. The inventor explains that you can get caterpillars to eat messages into wayward leaves by leaving a trail of honey in the shape of whatever. Leave a honey trail, as this picture shows, of the words “Love Me” and ol’ reliable Mr. Caterpillar will go to town.


What practical use does have? None. Not a one. It’s more of a, “Wow, that’s kinda… cool” thing. Visually, yes, it doesn’t look half-bad, which is mighty strong praise coming from me.
