Wallace and Gromit inspired pancake-making Rube Goldberg invention

The first time I was on television was when I was in 5th grade. I had won my school’s annual Rube Goldberg machine invention contest for the second year in a row. Talent scouts from NBC invited me and a few friends to come to Burbank as guests of Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show.

Rube Goldberg inventions have a special place in my heart.

I am also a huge fan of the Wallace & Gromit series of animated shorts and movies.

This story is a combination of those two loves:

Wallace and Gromit would be proud.

Inspired by the hit cartoon films, this contraption can produce your breakfast in one minute, and it’s just in time for Shrove Tuesday.

Commissioned by the happy egg co., the aptly-named ‘Pancake-omatic’ took a team of four design engineers more than 200 hours to construct and a further 100 to test.
