This electric self-driving potato is the Tesla of shitty robots

Tesla is about to face some stiff competition: One unusually resourceful tinkerer has built a futuristic potato robot that has the capacity to drive autonomously – and charge its own battery. Built by developer Marek Baczynski, the quirky mini-vehicle uses a pair of electrodes to generate its own power. Baczynski also hooked an energy-harvesting chip and a supercapacitor to the potato in order to accumulate enough energy to make the robot move. Thanks to these two additions, the device could store the electrochemical energy it produces and then use it to power its own movement once it reaches a certain voltage.…
