- Anybody care to take a whack at naming this robot? If it ever does go
10,000 hours, that would probably be some kind of world record for a
hobbyist robot outdoors. Maybe for any mobile robot.

also. It seems to have abundant practical uses in remote
I have to admit the idea of a pure photovore is very appealing.
One of the things to consider the balance of feeding to activity.
A photovore, as long as the sun shines appreciably, doesn't have
to expend much energy to 'find' energy. It can just sit in the sun.
It can also 'conserve' energy, as many animals do, by doing nothing.
So, what kind of ratio of feeding to activity are you willing to live with?
Sit in the suun for 10 hours for a 2 hour active period and a 12 hour
sleep period? Would probably be possible but, alas, would make for
for a pretty boring puppy. Still, would be a start.

S0 robot can survive outdoors in a temperate climate for 1 hour, an S1 for
ten hours, S2 100 hours, S3 1000 hours, and (my goal S4 - 10,000 hours.
