This $300 PancakeBot is the world's first food printer capable of printing pancakes in any shape, according to its inventor.

Batter your desired image by uploading it to an SD card and inserting it into the PancakeBot.

The printer will then dispense the pancake batter onto a flat griddle in the shape of your image.

The PancakeBot times the cooking of the batter to create the different shades of your image. The pressure, heat and speed controls can also be adjusted to refine complex designs into any desired shape.

Tamar Roth, resident engineer of Soda, a new retail brand launching the machine, said: "You can really make anything you want, as long as you can draw it, you can print it."

Invented by civil engineer Miguel Valenzuela, the first iteration of the PancakeBot was made out of Lego in 2013 for his daughters.
