Inspiration

Everyone loves pancakes. Everyone loves memes. Print memes on your pancakes.

What it does

Flaphacks takes an image, converts it to an SVG, converts that into GCODE, and prints the image as a pancake.

How we built it

We started with a web app using Javascript. The Javascript takes the image and converts it to an SVG. That svg is saved to a JSON object and then is converted to GCODE

Challenges we ran into

We ran into issues with how to structure this project at the beginning. We thought of using Raspberry Pis but upon demoing that idea we learned that using Selenium is easier.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're very proud of being able to bring this entire project to life.

What we learned

We learned a lot about communicating with different hardware.

What's next for Flaphacks

What's next for Flaphacks? What's next for FlapHacks?! We're going to make our prints able to print with color! Yes! Colorful pancakes!
