Alright Alex, I'll take useless inventions for $1,000!
Introducing the PancakeBot, a unique invention that's revolutionizing breakfast time. It encourages the aspiring artist / chef to create edible masterpieces. The somewhat unconventional contraption is comprised of a squeeze bottle affixed to a griddle that will literally draw the designs you upload to the machine. This nifty kitchen gadget is on Kickstarter and has already superseded its $50,000 goal. I guess people are really flipping for these flapjacks!
