Ever wonder what happens to the filling of an OREO when it’s twisted apart? Meet the Oreometer. MIT engineers developed a contraption to figure out exactly why the cookie’s cream sticks to just one wafer when twisted apart. After countless rigorous tests, they determined that regardless of the flavor (including these Pokemon OREO cookies) or amount of stuffing, the cream almost always stuck to just one side of the wafer when opened.
The mechanical engineers even went as far as finding what the torque required was to twist open an OREO, and discovered that it’s similar to turning a doorknob and about 1/10th the force required to twist open a bottle cap. That’s where the 3D-printed Oreometer comes in, a fairly basic device that securely grasps an OREO and then uses pennies as well as rubber bands to progressively twist the cookie open.
- Resume Printing Function: Ender 3 has the ability to resume printing even after a power outage or lapse occurs.
- Easy and Qucik Assembly: It comes with several assembled parts, you only need about 2 hours to assemble 20 nuts well.
- Advanced Extruder Technology: Upgraded extruder greatly reduces plugging risk and bad extrustion; V-shape with POM wheels make it move noiseless,...
Videos of the manufacturing process show that they put the first wafer down, then dispense a ball of cream onto that wafer before putting the second wafer on top. Apparently that little time delay may make the cream stick better to the first wafer,” said Crystal Owens, an MIT mechanical engineering PhD candidate who studies the properties of complex fluids.
