Panques are still booming in Japan. It seems that there are many people who go from rural areas to Omotesando on weekends and eat in line. But panques are one of the daily breakfast menus in the United States. In particular, children not only eat, but also enjoy the "panque art" of drawing pictures on a hot plate with panque dough, like Japanese monjayaki.
The panque Bot, a printer dedicated to panques, makes drawing with such panques easier. It is the world's first "smart hot plate" with the catchphrase "Panques are more than just baking, they are something to create."
To use "Panque Bot", design "Panque Art" using the attached drawing software on your computer. Save the created data to the SD card. Insert this SD card into the SD card slot of "Pancake Bot" and press the print button, and the picture according to the data will be drawn on the hot plate.
The included drawing software comes with a trace function, so you can trace your favorite pictures and pictures drawn by children and convert them into data. It is possible to bake panques with a design close to the original photo or picture.
If you read the company logo etc., you can serve the logo-shaped panque to employees at company parties.
The unfortunate thing about "Pancake Bot" is that it's not a 3D printer. I think children would be more happy if the three-dimensional panques were baked.
The developer, StoreBound, is looking for investors to commercialize "Pancake Bot" on the crowdfunding site kickstarter. We have already successfully raised more than our target. The price after the launch is planned to be $ 299. You can also get it by investing $ 179 on kickstarter (shipping not included). The shipping start time for kickstarter investors is July 2015.
