    I thought "autonomous" meant it was independent or something like that so I can't understand how it can be a lean-to and freestanding

    I thought with it being "autonomous" it self regulated the watering, heating and ventilation.

    And possibly moved around (plants and all) to the sunniest part on the garden.

    That's it, no more anime for me - it's giving me silly ideas.

    Wow...a PT that manages its self, makes its own mind up on what to grow and when it wants water....I think you have finally invented something viable
