The Machine That Lives Forever

Focusing on design techniques and implementations of very low energy, low loss intelligent hardware agents (bots) which are able to draw and efficiently use available ambient energy sources including solar, thermal, chemical, electromagnetic, electrostatic and RF both passive and active (especially 2.4/5.8/60GHz).  Biological parallels will be explored including resting, eating, working and surviving.  Self-awareness, location awareness and team discovery will be applied.
