Ecobot III, self sustainable robot. Ecobot is able to collect food and water from its environment and digests it using on-board microbial fuel cells (MFC). Waste matter is collected and either stored or ejected. The MFCs contain bacteria that digest organic matter, including faeces, and produces electricity as a by-product. Sensors on board Ecobot III enable it to move towards food, water or light.
