The PancakeBot is an ingenious pancake printer developed by Miguel Valenzuela that could usher in a world where everyone can churn out flapjacks in any two-dimensional shape that they desire.

Valenzuela was inspired to design the PancakeBot after reading about another hotcake enthusiast's mission to make a pancake-stamping machine from Lego. Encouraged by his daughters, the inventor went about building his epic pancake-creating machine. While it's not a 3D printer––as it doesn't allow you to scale up the pancakes vertically to create three-dimensional shapes––it still lets you get artistic and produce different two-dimensional forms.

Perhaps it's Valentine's Day morning and you want to print your significant other a heart-shaped pancake? The possibilities for its application are quite endless indeed.
