A nice stack of pancakes on Sunday morning brings joy to millions of people each week.  After seeing this video, those millions of people will understand that there is much more joy to be felt with a Pancake Bot in their kitchen!

Miguel Venezuela is the creator of the Pancake Bot, a 2D CNC Batter Depositing Machine that he built from Lego NXT parts and an electric griddle.  Miguel’s children really seem to enjoy the machine, as they can now have their pancakes in any shape they desire.

Miguel has shown off his creation at several Maker Faire, to the delight of Sunday morning loving adults and children.

The XY gantry system lends itself well to printing on a variety of surfaces…wonder if you could fashion one for the anti-griddle?
