Linux! make me a sandwich!!

We have always wondered, can we get our computer to make us a sandwich? Until now that was impossible with only a Persocom. But thanks to the brilliantness of DIY Maker guru Bre Pettis. From the Bre Pettis Blog article Sudo Make Me A Sandwich we learn how to build our own sandwich machine that can connect to our Linux box and make a smashing grill cheese sandwich.

This robot was inspired by XKCD, a wonderful webcomic that appears to have some sort of window into my head. I swear I think of things and the next day, there is an XKCD comic about it.
