Cesar Harada also made this prototype concept :  a robot dedicated to collecting  pollutants, that would eventually "die" whithin the pollutant it has collected. This would imply a robots which fabrication is green to the point it can offset its own fabiraction and the material bio-degradable. This is just a concept but proved interesting work on field testing.

One of the main dificulty for this drone : the propeller getting jammed quickly + the very important amount of energy needed to move this object around (here an electric battery for hobbyist models) is very high.
