New robot really does give a shit!
BOFFINS have invented a robot that can EAT flesh and POO out the waste.
Engineers from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory have created the machine, which is capable of processing living organisms and producing energy from them.
The robot has a ‘mouth’ created from a soft polymer membrane.
Through this membrane, food – or rather water containing living organisms – is pumped into the robot’s ‘stomach’, which contains a microbic fuel cell filled with bacteria.
The bacteria dissolves living organisms, producing energy for the machine.
The robot even has a special vent in the back for waste removal.
Boffins say it is only a matter of time before the robot eats meat.
