We've all been there. Awake at some ludicrously early hour -- on a Saturday morning no less -- slaving away over a hot griddle only to have your pancakes snubbed because they're too circular. Next time, impress your brood by frying up some custom-designed flapjacks using this robotic pancake printer. It's called the PancakeBot. This device combines an electric griddle and a patent-pending batter dispensing system to effectively "print" out pancakes virtually in any shape you can imagine -- or at least trace.

The process is fairly straightforward: use the included software to trace/create a design, transfer that image file from your computer to the machine via an SD card, and then just wait until its time to flip your edible masterpiece. PancakeBot's has already more than doubled its $50,000 crowd-funding goal. The device is expected to retail for $300 when it ships this July but you still have 28 days to pre-order one for half that price through Kickstarter.
