Okay, that title may be a tiny bit misleading. While there are certainly some great renditions of pancakes and other breakfast foods in LEGO (Ochre Jelly's Epic Meal Time), we're here to talk about actual pancakes, made by a LEGO machine. The process isn't perfect of course; creator Miguel Valenzuela still has to flip the pancakes and eat them himself. It runs on a single NXT unit and is in the process of being upgraded for more efficient control. The project has been around for a while, but the video in the Techcrunch article offers a little more detail into the inner workings. Now all he needs to do is get the machine to make bacon pancakes. That's what it's gonna make; bacon pancakes.http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=5937]View the full article[/url]

A more accurate title would be "Pancakes Made With Lego". Cool nonetheless.

The Epic Meal Time pic. is funny. Jack Daniels will knock you out before you even finish it. Also the Pancake bot really cool. Have you heard of a Lego tattoo machine?

I'm really considering making PankcakeBot. Not sure I have enough pneumatic air tanks though. Definitely a nifty little tool though! ^^

That was fantastic. I've never tried a pancake, but I'd surely try one of these!

Splendid! You know, this and all those other inventions get me thinking - perhaps there could be a.... Legopunk theme for fiction? Like Steampunk but with Lego?
