The inspiration for this came from the videos out there on youtube of people making dippin dots
by dripping melted ice cream through a syringe into a bowl of liquid nitrogen. When trying to replicate this effect I found that it was painfully slow at producing dippin dots so I tried to come up with something that would be more suitable to produce dippin dots from melted ice cream at a higher quantity.
This instructable contains my two attempts at creating a dippin dot machine. The first one was based on the method that I described of dripping melted ice cream into a syringe. I essentially tried to automate the process of pushing the back of a syringe so that I could just set the machine up, step back, and watch as the dippin dots were made. However after completing the first device I realized that their was a much simpler and more effective way to make dippin dots quickly. The second device is just a container with a bunch of holes in the bottom and it is put over a bowl of liquid nitrogen. I will go thorough the construction of both of these devices in this instructable although I would recommend making the second device if you actually wanted to make a lot of dippin dots.
