Sometimes, technology doesn't make things easier.

Case in point: this awful machine designed to prepare cereal. A robotic arm pours the cereal and the milk -- although not well.

Perhaps someone should invent a robotic arm that will rip off paper towels and clean up ugly spills.

Inventor Simone Giertz is the wizard behind this botched breakfast wonder and even explains how she did it.

You get the feeling the crew from The Big Bang Theory could perfect this in less time than it takes slurp the leftover milk in your bowl.

Let's just hope there comes a day when this invention is modified and good to go so everyone can use it, although only if people are smart enough to whip it out when enjoying fresh cereal.
