Thanks for reporting on this, Elizabeth. Looks like a complete win-win to me, and a form of biomimicry we don't often see: using plant biology, not animal biology, as a model. I'm not surprised this comes from Georgia Tech--besides leading robotics research, they've also been working on alternative energy and power sources for a long time.

William, like Elizabeth I suspect that the researchers may have already figured out under just what circumstances water will make the cells break down. It's quite possible that, like other recyclable materials, this will only occur under certain circumstances, like the anaerobic conditions of landfills, or at certain temperatures.
