This Oreo Robot Is Pretty Awesome


Custom Oreos? You better believe it.


It won't clean the dishes. It won't do the laundry, pick up your paper or DVR your favorite show. But this robot may just be your best mechanical friend in the house, because it will make you custom Oreo cookies.

We are guessing you can't buy this robot yet, but it's an awesome concept bot, based off of the Oreo trending vending showcase at SXSW, where visitors could make a selection via Twitter, and get a custom cookie.

"We have custom Oreo vending machines; what we're doing is we're tracking the top trends on Twitter, then we have an algorithm that converts those trends into custom cookie flavors and colors, so you get a custom taste experience."

Where do the other flavors come from?  But it's worth a watch below -- then check out the Oreo video from SXSW where they show off the real Oreo vending machines:
