Why does it matter why? What possible reason could justify the money spent?

Chomp! It sounds like a futuristic gadget for extreme slackers: an artificial mouth that chews food. The contraption, described in the 14 May issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, munches apples just like we do. It even measures the release of flavors and aromas. Researchers say the device will provide mouthfuls of information on how the chemical composition of food changes as it's being chewed in real time--in other words, why that apple tastes so good.
