Sim commented on Mirco-Plastic Cleaning robot!

Lol! I agree there a definitely a lot of positives to having a removable battery. It definitely is worth incorporating! Lol, no I trust you! I have neither of those, but I love gardening!

Hey Grace! I'm flattered that I made some sort of impression! Sweet! Thank you for your question! They have defiantly been thought-provoking. Lol! I value people who have different experiences and backgrounds often they have the most helpful insight simply because they don't see the world through my eyes! We would have a series of models, each reaching a level of independents that wasn't achievable by earlier models. The first of which would have to have human "reset" or collection. Its most feasible this way, and we considered placing it on research vessels. We have designed what is an internal hull separated*, with what we project has a carrying capacity of 4 pounds of microplastics. (*from the rest of the electronics, including the brain, battery, motors, etc). Great points, however, a large majority of micro-plastics will float, we decided that it is better to focus this effort on floaters in order to avoid causing a further environmental disturbance. There are far too many living organisms on the sea and lake floor.
We greatly want to use solar panels! It's one of the most environmentally sound, cost effect, and power-efficient. Perhaps having a removable battery would be helpful, it wasn't something we considered. Thank you for theses questions it was fun answering them!
We should connect on Ig! @eggpon_
