Ecobot IIIEcobot III, the eating and pooping robot
Robots are becoming highly advanced and, in an effort to become energetically independent, they now poop. Ecobot III is a robot capable of extracting energy from food by digesting it and ultimately getting rid of the leftover waste (i.e. it poops). It was created by Researchers at the UK’s Bristol Robotics Laboratory
This reminds us of EATR, the vegan robot, but the Ecobot III eats partially processed sewage (yummy!) instead of vegetables . Via Make.
