Robotic Chewing

Not quite intended as a household robot for the lazy eater, the Crumb Test Dummy was developed by staff at british biscuit-maker McVitie's laboratory to test the amount of crumbs biscuits produce because "the crumbs produced by a biscuit show if it has been cooked to perfection".

"Eating lots of biscuits is obviously an enjoyable prospect for most people but we haven't yet found a human who can test on this scale," the BBC quotes Mcvitie's brand manager Liz Ashdown.
