Teasing the Robot
According to Gizmag, NEC robotic playmate Papero can be equipped to taste food for you.
Papero is famous for their resemblance to Cartman.
...if it has the food registered in its database, it can identify the type of food and even the brand in some cases. Most importantly, it can give you a reading on how good the food is for you...
It appears that the Papero does not actually eat the food but point to it with a special sensor finger.
This would be a perfect companion for the paranoid despotic ruler in your family.
