This Wonder Machine Makes Perfect Pancakes on a Stick

Pancakes are either the world's best or world's worst food, depending on how far along the stack you are. They are also surprisingly delicate to prepare, being extremely easy to burn to a blackened crisp. One of these days there will be a magnificent technology that takes pancake-making to its easiest and most convenient endpoint. Wait. That day is today? Oh yeah. That day is today.

Introducing the Roky, a marvelous lil gadget that makes perfect pancakes on a stick. Consider them like corn dogs, only without both the corn and the dog. All you do is pour batter in the machine, wait several minutes, and then enjoy an expertly prepared, elliptical pancake. It's available only in Japan, for now, and costs $60.
