Lego Robot Can Serve Up Pancakes in Whatever Shape You Want
June 30th, 2011
Last year, we were mesmerized with the pancake flipping robot arm; now it’s time to meet the robot that can actually cook up some mean pancakes.

This pancake-cooking bot is actually a 3-axis CNC-made robot that makes use of the Z coordinate as its Pancake Batter Dispenser Control. Here’s a video of the bot in action:
They aren’t being made commercially, but you can give making one yourself a go by following the directions Mexican Viking use to create the one above.
