awesome job bot i think it don't really useful - you can put cream on cake yourself so you don't have to build it but I know it is for holiday helper challenge anyway I think it is awesome! but next time make it to more useful and come and see my stuffs!


great!


Nice! This kind of works like my Marshmellow Roaster. You should check it out!


Thanks guys


I have submitted the LDD!!!


Perhaps it should come in from the side so a plate can fit under it more easily. The machine doesn't swirl the bottle around yet, does it?


I cant wait til it is up! I'll make this bot! 5*****!!!


wow that so cool


I LOVE it!


U should put a rotator on the bottom to put a cup of jello so it would look like a swirl


You should of won the Holiday Helper Challenge. I think the judges did not pick very good winners. I made you bot and it worked great.


That's awesome!!! Thanks a lot.

This is the ultimate Whipped Cream Server to have during the Holidays! This machine can automatically serve you whipped cream. All you have to do is put a can of whipped cream of the right size and shape into the whipped cream can holder, adjust the black piston and the whipped cream can, and you are ready to go! Now for the fun part! Place your favorite piece of pie under the dispenser and then sit back and watch the machine put whipped cream on it. Enjoy!!! -MODES- This machine has three different modes. 1. AUTOMATIC MODE 2. MANUAL MODE 3. SOUND MODE -HOW IT WORKS- 1. SOUND MODE In this mode the machine waits until it "sees" something (in this case, your hand putting the piece of pie under the dispenser). When the machine "sees" something, it will wait two seconds and then the motor that moves the black piston will turn 180 degrees which causes the piston to push against the nozzle of the can of whipped cream which makes the whipped cream to come out of the can. Then the motor brakes for three seconds and then moves another 180 degrees, which makes the piston move back. While making this machine I tried many different ways to make the whipped cream come out of the can, including using three motors. But the piston was the only idea that worked. 2. MANUAL MODE In this mode the machine waits until you press the touch sensor. Then the motor which moves the piston turns 180 degrees and then brakes, causing the whipped cream to come out of the can. The whipped cream will continue coming out until you press the touch sensor again. I think that this mode is neat because some people like putting more whipped cream on their pie than others. 3. SOUND MODE In this mode the machine waits until you make a loud sound. Then the motor which moves the piston turns 180 degrees and then brakes, causing the whipped cream to come out of the can. The whipped cream will continue coming out until you make another loud sound. Be sure to rate and comment.
