#video | Resident of Poland has built a self-driving robot of potatoes

From school physics course we all know that some fruits and vegetables (e.g., potatoes or citrus) with the help of simple manipulations with electrodes can be turned into real food sources. But since fruits and vegetables are the batteries, why not make them a robot? The more that food item there may be at the same time and the device? I guess that's what I thought the Polish engineer Marek Bachinsky, building the robot from potatoes.

But getting a robot of energy «himself» did not stop! Pan Bachinski decided to make not just a robot out of potatoes, and a self-governing robot from potatoes! Since the conversion of all the mechanisms into motion the process is quite energy-intensive, to connect all the elements directly out. Therefore, as the battery enthusiast using a supercapacitor. The principle is quite simple: electrodes on one side connected to the potato, and the other — to the supercapacitor, which nourishes the other elements. After 15 minutes (as required for charging) you can go. However, a long travel will not work: the robot can drive only 8 inches.

When creating a robot used wheels from a child's construction and a simple motor. In addition, the engineer designed a control unit with which the robot can self-navigate, avoid obstacles. With the story of the author about the creation of the robot you can see in the video below.
