With the advent of 3D technology, it’s becoming more and more common to create the fantastic from nothing. Once, we lived in a world where the sight of someone’s face on a piece of toast could be considered a religious sign. Now, for a price, one can get the same result in minutes. Pancakes are no different.
Kinnear Dufort, a designer based in the UK, has developed a machine that utilizes both facial recognition and 3D printing. While both have been done before, Dufort combines the two technologies to make pancakes with faces printed on them.
The machine releases layers of pancake batter that cooks in a time-sensitive sequence after an image is captured through digital photography. Because of the intricate process involved cooking pancakes in multiple layers, everything is computed to the second. The overall process takes about five minutes.
Yep. You can now drench your face in syrup and have yourself for breakfast.
