Scientists To Power Robot With Human Urine
Researchers at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory have potentially found a new way to power their next robots: human urine.By Matt Picht | November 8, 2013
Are you looking for a renewable, eco-friendly source of energy to power your new robot? Urine luck!
Scientists at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory have designed a pump to power their new line of environmentally friendly Ecobots. The system works like a human heart — but instead of pumping blood, it runs on ... well, pee. (Via YouTube / UWE Bristol)
This heart-like mechanism is intended to feed urine into a microbial fuel cell, where microorganisms will feed on chemicals in the urine, producing electricity in the process. (Via National Science Foundation)
