This is not an automatic pancake maker, you can sometimes see in high-end hotels. When the inventors say "endless," that's exactly what they mean. Hypothetically, this machine could make a single elongated pancake indefinitely.
This South African invention consists of a hopper that pours pancake batter over two wheel-shaped pans that are heated from the inside with a gas-fed fire. The wheels spin continously, frying the batter, then pouring the cooked pancake out the front.
The above video shows a special version of the machine that was constructed for a world record attempt. It made a pancake 482 feet long!
