Wild Card's description 
This robot gobbles up wood chips, leaves and other “biomass” and generates electricity. In the future, autonomous robots can roam the planet in search of raw biomass to consume for power. The EATR Robot can change the global energy supply system, especially in remote locations. We can be in a process building low carbon economy by the help of the EATR Robots.
