A great concept built by some students at Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering have pieced together a wondrous device!
A CNC based cake decoration machine!
CNC if you are wondering; stand for Computer Numerical Control, when a computer is used to translate an image or data - into X,Y & Z co-ordinates.
Allowing for 3D mapping, so when these co-ordinates are fed through to a maching capable of milling a material, you can precisely craft a CAD (computer aided design) model into a real life prototype!
The students at Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering took this concept and turned it into a cake decoration machine!
The 'AutoFrost' machine is talked about all over the web - simply Googling the name will return much more detail on the construction, concept and team behind this wonderous cake-based device.
