If you've ever seen a pie chart depicting the workforce gender gap, this literal pie chart puts a yummy spin on displaying information. Designed by artist Annina Rüst, a robotic installation places pie charts on edible pies to visualize gender inequality, specifically when it comes to women in technology.

With Pie Bot, you can tell misogynists to actually eat their outdated ideas. The gender gap data reflected in these pie charts are specific to inequalities in technical environments in Switzerland, such as universities, companies, conferences and the public sector.

A Piece of the Pie Chart is not just a robot, it is also a computer workstation that automatically tweets pictures of the pie. Intended to function in a gallery setting, the installation can receive visitors who are able to make their own pies.
