    The system obtains its energy by foraging – engaging in biologically-inspired, organism-like, energy-harvesting behavior which is the equivalent of eating. It can find, ingest, and extract energy from biomass in the environment (and other organically-based energy sources), as well as use conventional and alternative fuels (such as gasoline, heavy fuel, kerosene, diesel, propane, coal, cooking oil, and solar) when suitable.

    There is a wonderful cartoon depiction on Slide 23 of a .pdf presentation I have been trying to copy.

    Who says things can't be done if there is a will? :-)

    As you probably guessed it is DOD that is behind this self-fueling robot.  

    But the rest of us can't figure out how to make do.  We have to pretend wind and solar will do it all.

    Best,  Terry
