This creation, by Bart and Stef, repurposes a can lid to cut cakes. You can select as many slices as you want and the NXT brick computes the angles.

    This is brilliantly useless. I love it.

    Fun; I’ll bet frosting build-up causes some interesting problems.

    Would have saved some time to write the code to cut across the whole cake, index the platter then come back cutting the next slices. Efficiency people! This is cake we’re waiting for.

    Your cake cutter is just a copy, exactly the same, of my creation which I have made in 2009 as you can see on the pasquentmax youtube page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXdBEkYzegI
