Bio-Cleaner2 is an innovative system that combines the technique of Robot Snake and Shewanella oneidensis (a specialized bacteria which breaks down metals) to solve the problem of the water pollution from the heavy metals. The bacteria will generate electricity and clean water by the process of breaking down / decomposing the heavy metals materials. The electricity will provide the power for the Robot Snake to keep operating and the clean water will drain back into the ocean. The Bio-Cleaner2 is suitable for use in a fish pond, ocean, and so on. Through the symbiosis of products and living creatures, it will purify the water on earth.
