Science invents puking robot

4 January 2013

The wait is over! Scientists have made a robot that puke up! Isn't that what we've all wanted, since forever?

Of course, while this sounds like something really pointless, it is in fact, something that could help us all understand and fight illnesses.

The android, named Vomiting Larry is an anatomically-correct model of a human and can hoik its guts up like it has the norovirus. And thanks to Larry being a robot, clever people in white coats can recreate it in a controlled environment in a bid to understand it and hopefully, get rid of it.

Vomiting Larry is an impressive puker as well, and can spray stinking bile to a distance of nearly 10 feet!
