PancakeBot Is Pancake Printing To Make Breakfast Cooler

Sorry to make you hungry, but I saw something that is very cool!  Designer Miguel Valenzuela created the PancakeBot, which is a robot that draws intricately designed pancakes.  The current design of the device consists of an acrylic body, an Arduino Mega, and two Adafruit Motor Shields, vacuum pump for batter control and of course a griddle. The initial version of the device was made out of LEGO blocks.  The new version of the machine was featured at the Bay Area Maker Faire on May 17th-18th.

Miguel continues to improve upon the design while living in Norway and is using PancakeBot in after school programs to teach kids about engineering, robot building and programming, and eating pancakes.  Here is a video of what the PancakeBot is all about!  Also, there is an animated video called the Breakfast Gallop that took 7 days, 50 pancakes, and lots of reworking.

Celebrate IHOP National Pancake Day On March 4th


Picture1kknkknnn

I know the Anniston area had their Kiwanis pancake breakfast event over the weekend.  But if you enjoyed some pancakes from that event, or you still want to enjoy some pancakes, there is a special event coming up just for you!  On Tuesday March 4th, IHOP is running the National Pancake Day event at their restaurants.  Since 2006, IHOP restaurants have raised $13 million to support charities in the communities in which they operate.

 

On March 4, 2014, guests from around the country will once again celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP restaurants and enjoy a free short stack of Buttermilk pancakes.  In return for the free pancakes, guests will be asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charities.  The free shortstack of pancakes is available from 7 am to 10 pm.  There’s a limit of one short stack of pancakes per guest.  The offer is valid while supplies last, and is not valid with any other offer, special coupon or discount.

In Alabama, Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.  And I know they will enjoy seeing people going to IHOP and donating money to help children in need!  So go out and enjoy some pancakes on Tuesday!  To learn more about IHOP National Pancake Day, go to: http://ihoppancakeday.com/
