Oreo separator -- An Oregon physicist had made a device that has just one purpose: separating Oreos in two. A video of the “Oreo Separator Machine” was posted on YouTube.

A physicist has created a machine for the people who prefer their Oreo cookies separated apart.

In the video, Portland physicist and copywriter David Neevel built the “Oreo Separator Machine” to separate the two halves of the namesake cookie.

“My Oreo Separator Machine is entirely based on the dislike of cream,” he said.

The video for the device is part of Oreo’s “Cookie vs. Creme” marketing campaign, which was set up on Instagram and now YouTube, reported the Mashable website. 

“I didn’t get to see my girlfriend or my dog for hours at a time,” Neevel said, adding “there were a lot of sacrifices, I guess.”

He said he built the device out of scraps of aluminum, motors, and wood, and has worked on the machine for “about .4 years … wait .04 years.”

He added: “I don’t have a catchphrase for my machine, but if I did have one I guess it could be something like ‘Let’s Get That Creme Outta There,’ or like, ‘This Creme’s No Good Get it Off the Cookies,’ or something.”
