a study from researchers at the University of Pennsylvania engineers next generation scavenger technology possessing the capability to enable robots to 'eat' metal for energy. The team states their 'Metal-Air Scavenger' (MAS) works like a battery, providing power by repeatedly breaking and forming a series of chemical bonds in metal and air, however, it also works as a harvester gathering energy from its environment.
