Scientists at Australia's Monash University have developed a computer science learning framework that uses food to teach fundamental computing concepts.

Logic Bonbon integrates logic operations with edible materials, whose outcome is a liquid-centered dessert.

The system features a pre-made hollow bonbon and the option of three different "logic gates" that allow flavored liquids to flow into the bonbon.

Said Monash's Jialin Deng, "Through their interactions with the Logic Bonbons, the participants tangibly experience and learn about logic operations and are essentially creating a mini edible computer that requires an input, performs computation, and results in different combinations of outputs while displaying different emoticons and flavors, allowing to the user to experience what computation 'tastes' like."
