HERB the Robot Separates Oreo Cookies

The latest contraption to separate the cookies and cream from Oreo cookies is a robot named HERB, Carnegie Mellon’s butler ‘bot. He was built for performing household tasks, and what task could be more important than separating Oreo cookies?

HERB prefers the cream over the cookie, even though he’s a robot. Watch HERB work his magic on some Oreos in the latest Oreo Separator video. The team at Carnegie Mellon had HERB try a few different methods before they found the right way to do it.

At one point he can be seen stabbing the cookies with a kitchen knife. I’m glad that didn’t work – the idea of a robot with a razor sharp knife doesn’t sit well with me. Eventually they settled for the grab and twist method. I love how he pronounces the word Oreo. It sounds a bit like the HAL 9000.
