If I was a roboticist I'd create(or try to create) robotic digestive system for robots.This systems would have two basic objectives:Give robots the pleasure of eating feeling the taste of food and make robots more like living organic organisms(eating food would make more difficult to differentiate an android or a robot animal from their organic biological equivalents). It was very nice in the bicentennial man when the scientist gave Andrew a digestive system and he ate a breakfast for the first time in his life and he said it was very tasteful.

 

But the most bizarre part of the robotic digestive system would be the artifitial pee and feces.

 

If you think that artifitial digestive system seen unnecessary and impossible, there are developments trying to create one(Gastrobots as well), and I watched a video on YouTube showing a machine which you put food on it and it do feces in the final(It seens somewhat bizarre but nonetheless, it's a real thing).

My focus would simply to use food to "power" the operations of the robot or Android.

 

Why should something need to ever be plugged into a wall?

Video?

Source?

I'd like to see an artificial digestive system

I can't really see a point to this outside of scientific curiosity and highly specialized applications.

No point but to allow sentient machines experience the same sensory stimulation and pleasure that humans enjoy. Not necessary but certainly an experience every capable consciousness should have.

Not all machines would be sentient. And would those that are, want to? I'm sure those who wanted to for some reason could find a way. Or just use VR.

It might be possible in the future if you have robots that operate in remote areas, like at the bottom of mile deep mine shafts, It might be cheaper to send down some sort of nutrient pack which they can break down into energy, than continually extending your electrical grid for miles underground. even then I think it might be easier to ship batteries back and forth. I cant think of any other situation where it wouldn't be obviously easier to use solar or battery packs. 

 

Maybe if we found a planet full of alien life (like another earth) and for some reason solar is not feasible, you could create a robot that can chemically process the alien plants for energy and send it off to explore, survey and catalogue the alien flora and fauna.

 

So yeah, I think the only reason is so people can pretend their robots are not robots.

I could have sworn there was a years-old thread about pooping robots already.

Can we ever have too many pooping robot threads? This critical subject needs to be discussed in detail at least once a year, how else can we prepare ourselves and society for the terrifying future that awaits us?

It's one of the most important breakthroughs in scientific history.

Holy crap! Scientists create pooping robot
 
Meet The Robot That Eats And Poops To Power Itself


"Diarrhea-bot would be more appropriate," lab director Chris Melhuish told New Scientist. "It's not exactly knocking out rabbit pellets."
If you think self-feeding robots are terrifying, EcoBot III can only extract about 1 percent of its food's chemical energy even after repeated recycling. So human flesh is off the menu for now.
