PancakeBot: Drawing a Sea Horse

PancakeBot is a machine that Miguel Valenzuela made for his daughters Lily and Maia out of LEGO Mindstorms, LEGO bricks and two ketchup bottles. He has since toured Maker Faires around the globe, hoping to inspire kids to get into engineering and programming as he shares different pancake designs. Above, this seahorse pancake.

In the archives, food and robots mix again to make cheese, and a DIY Mathematically Correct Breakfast.
