BeBot robot collects tiny plastic waste to clean our beaches
Solar powered bot is on beach cleaning duty. Almost like a roomba for nature. Via Designboom:
4ocean in collaboration with poralu marine created an eco-friendly solution for beach cleanups. BeBot is a mobile beach-cleaning robot that mechanically sifts sand to collect plastic waste and other debris as small as 1 square cm without harming the environment. the 100% electric vehicle can silently clean up to 3.000 sqm of beach per hour depending on the terrain.
