Army scientists could use urine to charge 3D printed drones that eat themselves

Scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory have discovered that a recently engineered aluminum nano-powder can rapidly produce hydrogen when mixed with urine. The powder could be used to make 3D printed robots that “feed off their own structures” and self-destruct after missions. ARL’s Anthony J. Roberts uses urine to set off a chemical reaction Back at the end of July, scientists and engineers at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory discovered that a new aluminum nanomaterial could produce high amounts of energy when mixed with water, or with “any liquid containing water.” The Army team hailed the discovery as […]
