Someone made a breakfast machine completely made out of Lego, and it’s truly incredible. The Breakfast Machine is comprised of multiple, intricate parts: including the egg cracker that can tap, and split eggs, neatly dropping off the shells, a spatula car used to fry and move eggs and bacon, and claws that gingerly hold the egg in place while the machine moves it onto a plate. It can even pick up salt and pepper shakers to season the meal.
“My father cooks breakfast every Saturday and Sunday – it is 104 times a year! He deserved this present,” the Breakfast Machine creator, The Brick Wall, writes. Making a part that can crack an egg but not drop the shell into the pan was one of the hardest parts to make, according to comments on the Youtube video from The Brick Wall. “I spent almost a week working on the right mechanism.” There are small metal blades that hold the shell in place, and during testing, the machine only dropped the egg shell one out of 11 times. The Brick Wall used clear tape to protect Lego pieces from contact with the food, which made cleaning the machine a breeze.
Previously, The Brick Wall has made other Lego marvels, including a Lego Roomba consisting of 986 parts (including a tiny Lego pilot) that can sweep up Lego pieces scattered around a room, and a functioning Lego harvesting machine that can cut up sprigs of spring onion, and pick up tomatoes and apples. Legos! What can’t they do?
