Cereal Conveyor

No More Soggy Cereal

Dump your desired amount of dry cereal into the hopper. This hopper feeds down to a motorized conveyor belt which brings the cereal upward and over the edge of your cereal bowl (conveyor's angle could be adjustable), which you have already poured your desired amount of milk or other liquid into. It drops the cereal pieces in. You eat them with your spoon. Has a knob to adjust the speed. If you turn it all the way on high, it might be like that episode where Lucy works at the candy factory.

I'm thinking this could be made of dishwasher-safe plastic for the most part. Maybe the hopper would vibrate or shake a little to keep the cereal from clogging up. It could be battery operated.

       This is excellent. I would also pay for the luxury model, which would use an advanced optics and robotics system to monitor the number of cereal pieces remaining in the milk, and replace them one-for-one from the dry hopper using a miniature arm.

       Good to know.

       [whatrock], if you use a fork, you can use less milk, as it doesn't get removed as fast while eating.
Using a knife requires ninja-level dexterity and reflexes.

       Too chewy and lacking flavour; altho they could be enriched with vitamins and minerals by pressure-treatment.   

       On the whole, cereal is a much better breakfast option than chopsticks.

       I'm sure this would be a big seller, especially if there is a supplementary device capable of diverting some of the cereal via a system of plastic tubes to a nearby bird feeding table. [+]
