It is the year 3017 and Willy Wonka has lost his Oompa Loompas. They all left when they found out he no longer has cocoa beans. Without them, he can't do even the simple things such as pouring a bowl of cereal. We decided to try to build a machine to pour the cereal for him. Let's hope this can solve his hunger!!
