In an effort to get kids interested in programming and engineering, Miguel Valenzuela created PancakeBot, a 3D printer that builds delicious, whimsically shaped breakfast food. Writes Valenzuela on his site:
Project PancakeBot aims to help kids inspire kids to create and have fun with their food as well as develop interests in engineering, programming and food manufacturing through the use of PancakeBot. There are two versions of the PancakeBot now. The first is new version made out of Acrylic, stepper motors and Arduino controller, the second is the LEGO version.
Watch it in action in the bizarro stop-motion video above. There’s also a version made out of Legos.
