We all know how urine has offered multiple solutions as far as the search for alternative energy is concerned so why not robots?
Normally powered by electronics, robots could fall in the line of alternatively powered pieces in the future too. And thanks again to some researchers, this time from the University of the West of England, a dynamic system which could power these robots for a long time could be a possibility.
Using a device which can reportedly mimic a human heart, certain fuel cells were used to contain microorganisms which could digest urine.
The urine is eventually able to produce electrons and seen to harvest electrical current and provide some power for robots.
But for now, it seems that the pump alone is insufficient. More work or perhaps more aid (power-wise) may be needed if robots can indeed be certifiably urine-powered.
