CNC Toast Graphics

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have concocted a wild toast making machine. Well it doesn’t really make toast, it prints images on the toast using hot air. Soon we will have to jack our toasters into the net so that our toast will have ads that go with the ads on our eggs.

Video after the jump.

“Recently we succeeded in mounting the hot air gun to the carriage of the printer. The next step was testing the XY motion control system without the Z axis installed.

It turns out that you can actually do some interesting things with just the print head and the X-Y gantry. Especially since, as one of our astute readers noted in a comment, “(3D printer – Z axis) + hot air rework station=completely digital toast imaging technology.” Our thoughts exactly.”
