This killer AI is cutting up crusts

Everything for the best PJ

What kind of neanderthal do you have to be to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the actual crusts (feigns shock).

Andrew DeGonge from 3dprintedlife makes all kinds of marvelous things, amongst which a crust cutting robot.

The robot chopper uses Raspberry Pi, a custom designed control board, computer vision and basic object detection algorithms to locate the bread and align it with the knife.

The knife is currently too dull to actually cut off the crusts, but this is easily solved by replacing it with a sharpened one (which is not at all a frightening prospect).
