In 1998 the University of South Florida Institute's director, Dr. Stuart Wilkinson
Coined the term gastrobot meaning a robot with a stomach. This creation relies on real food to sustain its energy! In the future we hope gastrobots will be able to seek out edible food. One example of a gastrobot is Chew Chew. Chew Chew is a train like gastrobot that relies on sugar cubes to run!
