Shades of soylent green. It seems as though some sites got overexcited about the eating habits of the EATR by implying that it may ingest more than just plants. This prompted its makers to issue a message to let us all know that bot won't eat any dead bodies in its path.

"In response to rumors circulating the Internet on sites such as FoxNews.com, FastCompany.com, and CNET News about a 'flesh eating' robot project, Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (Pink Sheets: CYPW) and Robotic Technology Inc. (RTI) would like to set the record straight: This robot is strictly vegetarian."

We will buy that, but what about insects and small woodland creatures hidden in the brush?
