Believe it or not, pancake art has become a trendy way to spice up breakfast, with talented chefs showing off their golden brown creations online. But none can match the intricacy of Nathan Shields' batter-spewing spirograph machine known as the Pangraph. It's a work of engineering art unto itself, but the pancakes it produces are truly impressive.

It's probably not the best contraption to use in a busy diner, since the spiral creations take a bit longer to create than your typical stack of flapjacks. And cutting into these pancakes almost feels like defiling a masterpiece, would you pour maple syrup on the Mona Lisa? [Pangraph via BoingBoing]
