These days you can 3D print just about any material fathomable: plastic, metals, wood, carbon fiber, wax, silk… and now pancake batter. Consisting of a two-axis computer-controlled batter dispenser and a griddle, PancakeBot allows you to print your own fluffy breakfast creation. Pre-made designs are available online, or you can make your own by tracing any image using the included software (Mac & Windows). You then transfer the design via SD card and load some batter, and PancakeBot takes care of the rest. The griddle, your canvas, measures 17.5 x 8.25 in. On-board controls allow you to pause/resume and adjust dispenser pressure. Any batter can be used, though an included recipe is said to yield best results. The griddle is removable for washing, and the entire printer disassembles for easy storage. PancakeBot was funded on Kickstarter in April 2015 and started shipping to backers in January. It is now available via their website for $300 in your choice of red or black.
