Nach kackenden Bots und Automaten, die sich von Pisse, Mücken und Mäusen ernährenden (siehe unten), hier nun die vegetarische Variante: Ivan Henriques hat einen Roboter gebaut, der in einem Aquarium lebt und sich von Algen ernährt, die in seinem „Verdauungstrakt“ per Photosynthese Energie erzeugen.

In collaboration with scientists from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Ivan Henriques developed a prototype for an autonomous photosynthetic bio-machine which harvests energy from photosynthetic organisms, applying this energy to movement to be able to collect photosynthetic organisms again.

This bio-solar machine will create a symbiotic system with the environment where it is located, which detects, collects, carries and processes these organisms autonomously, amplifying the energy obtained from them using a floating mobile robotic structure. These micro organisms can be found in ponds, canals, rivers and the sea, which are a potential source to feed the Symbiotic Machine. The environment where it is located can be cleaned as in the case when harmful algae blooms. During two months the Symbiotic Machine lives in an aquarium in the Glass House, where it feeds itself algae.
