Rearming the Spineless Opuntia (1999)

“Rearming the Spineless Opuntia” by Amy Youngs focuses on the Spineless Opuntia, a cactus which was engineered through cloning and micropropagation technologies to remove its protective needles,. The defenceless plant is outfitted with a proximity sensor, and gets covered with a spiked copper shell when approached.
