The Terminator himself will need to raise his eyebrows looking at this one. The US Military are on the verge of coming up with a robot that simply gobbles up everything organic like trees, forage, anything wooden and even human carcasses. The robot will be named EATR (Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot). All the good things eaten up by the robot will be used to generate enough power to power it for its next endeavor. This sounds a bit gross but the functionality is simply smart, practical and very feasible in a world that’s plagued with shortage of natural energy resources.
Note – The robot is not a cannibal and does not turn human flesh into energy.
The EATR will be the project of Robotic Technology Inc. The company is well known for several non-human masterpieces that have made their mark in the history of Robotics and AI.
