Scientists invent robot that eats organic matter, then poops it out

MNN: A new generation of 'ecobots' may soon collect their own food and water — and be powered by human waste.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow. At first it sounds completely out there, but the idea itself is intriguing. Would solve some issues if robots could "eat" wastes or stuff like trash/plastic where ever they are.

However I think if they ate regular food or need water hen it would be a bad choice. There is already enough people starving and without water that should go to them and not robots.

No biggie really, my niece has a doll that eats, cries, poops and pees the bed. On the other hand why would you want a terminator to do such things....just study humans if you want to know what makes them tick.
