A mobile app featuring a manufacturing robot has been launched as part of the food and drink industry’s careers campaign.

The free app, called MunchBot, is based on some of the robotic solutions used by food and drink manufacturers to increase production and efficiency.

The objective of the game is to get the robot to grab as many food items as possible off a moving conveyor belt within 30 seconds.  Points are accumulated for every food item grabbed.

Items include tins of soup and chocolate bars and the user must avoid trick items along the way that steal points.

Developed by the careers campaign called “Taste Success” and mobile app firm Socially Bright, the MunchBot app aims to provide a game based on mechanical engineering solutions used in food and drink manufacturing.
