The thought of pancakes just invokes fresh smells, good memories, lazy weekends, and full stomachs ready for naps. My finest memories as a kid are of Sunday mornings with my dad in the kitchen whipping up pancakes and making an epic mess of flour and dishes while my mom slept in blissfully. Whistling and singing away, he plied us with plates stacked with far more pancakes than my siblings and I could ever consume, buttering and syruping and smiling away.
Sunday mornings might be about to change for a lot of dads on duty these days. Forget about frozen pancakes or eating out. Forget about the waffle maker and the griddle — it’s time to hit the high-tech big-time and buy a 3D printer for your kitchen. Not only satiating their appetites, you can feed the brains of the little ones with some science education and STEM curriculum kicking right into breakfast.
For those indeed looking to produce the tasty cakes at home with a 3D printer, adding your own labor of love, the PancakeBot team is finally going to allow you the privilege of buying one of their amazing machines, in a partnership with StoreBound — a company known for their work with individuals and startups who are in the business of creating — with a focus on household goods.
While the pancake is a very basic food, it is enormously revered in many cultures. Certain restaurant economies survive on these bread-y discs soaked in flavored sugars and real butter, surrounded by sausage, bacon, and maybe a healthy dose of fresh fruit tossed in for good measure. Hungry yet? Ready to design and 3D print your very own edible artwork?
After a number of iterations, spanning almost five years, and including an endorsement by President Obama, soon you can finally buy your own 3D printer for pancakes and make some amazing designs. Talk about wowing the crowd at the breakfast table — from the Eiffel Tower to animal shapes and famous faces — this is a 3D printer that everyone can enjoy.
The PancakeBot makes speedy work of the batter (not included!) forming your chosen design as the perfect vehicle for all the delicious condiments that go with the delectable cakes. The batter simply squirts onto the hot buildplate, cooks — and you eat — matching it up with maple syrup from its attached dispenser.
If you are already familiar with the idea of the PancakeBot, it’s probably in one of the previous releases such as the original pancake stamper using LEGO, or the later release shown off at Maker Faire Bay Area 2014, very similar to what you can buy now, featuring:
- Acrylic body
- Adafruit motor shields
- Atmel-based Arduino Mega
- Two stepper motors, two belt drives
- Vacuum pump
This fun option will probably have you doing the ‘breakfast for dinner’ deal quite often too. Bring it on! PancakeBot and Storebound should have the 3D printers available for sale soon. Tell us what you think about the idea of PancakeBot & Storebound forum over at 3DPB.com.
