Behold the robotic future of cake decoration

Rather than a traditional robotics origin story for the device, the automatic cake decorator was created by a design studio named mischer'traxler.

Developments are still continuing apace in the field of delicious-food-making robots. This time we have an automated cake decorator that extrudes designs onto your cake in a process that's one part frosting, one part spirograph, and 100% awesome.

The device uses a steady stream of frosting while rotating the cake and extending and contracting the arm holding the frosting. The result is a flower-like pattern of frosting that can be run indefinitely to create increasing complex patterns.

Rather than a traditional robotics origin story for the device, the automatic cake decorator was created by a design studio named mischer'traxler. The studio has created other quasi-robotic devices in the past such as a solar powered exhibit that builds objects out of thread and a couple of designer 3D printing processes created to make the outcomes random but still useful.

The device was part of a design exhibition entitled Design Criminals Or a New Joy Into The World], organized in Austria as part of Vienna Design Week. The show explored the idea of ornamentation in design with topics ranging from floristry to tattooing to, obviously, baking. Sadly, the show didn't feature any floristry or tattooing robots.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
