If you’ve been eagerly next the createment of the PancakeBot over the past few years, you will be excited to hear that the pancake 3D printing device is now market eager and is eager for purchase in its final iteration. The pancake 3D printing device, capable of building pancakes in approximately any intricate create or shape, was presented at this year’s 2016 International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago, that took place of March 5th to 8th. There, crowds were impressed by the PancakeBot’s aptitude to print not only a number of additional detailed images, like the Eiffel Tower, or a dinosaur, but in addition a journalist’s face.

The PancakeBot is fundamentally a breakfast griddle that has been equipped a 3D printing contraption that, as you may have guessed, does not extrude plastic 3D printing device filament, but extrudes pancake batter. The batter, held in a reservoir above the griddle, is fed into the extruder that begins to draw onto the hot griddle, cooking the batter as it hits the surface. The additional detail and accuracy of the images turned into edible pancakes are truly remarkable, as the PancakeBot actually prints the batter in such a way that additional details, such as eyes or a mouth, cook longer than other segments of the pancake, building the additional details stand out.

The CNET journalist who had his own face turned into a pancake explained the system that actuallytually allowed him to take a bit of his delicious mug. He only took a selfie, uploaded the photo into the PancakeBot’s special software called PancakePainter, and a PancakeBot representative traced over additional details of his face to manufacture a easy drawing the PancakeBot may reproduce. From there, the image file was put onto an SD card and uploaded into the PancakeBot, that began the printing. Within only a few minutes the pancake of his face was cooked and eager to be eaten.

The PancakeBot was initially conceived by Miguel Valenzuela, who created the machine out of LEGO so that his two young daughters may enjoy fun-shaped pancakes. Seeing the good results of his own invention, Valenzuela brought the pancake 3D printing device to the World Maker Faire in New York where it attracted much enthusiastic attention.

After additional createing the machine over time, Valenzuela debuted his acrylic PancakeBot at the San Mateo Maker Faire in 2014 and discovered an increasingly positive response. In order to bring his product to the market, the inventor decided to partner with StoreBound, and now only a little over a year after the partnership’s announcement, the consumer-eager PancakeBot has been announced. The astounding pancake 3D printing device is on the market for purchase through the PancakeBot website and can be ordered for $299 in either a black or red finish.
