Sept 9, 2010: Egg Bot
Three guys have put together this Egg-Bot kit, which decorates damn near anything, spherical or ovoid and smaller than a grapefruit, with a sharp marker. You can have the bestest Christmas balls, or Easter eggs, in town.

In my day all you got to color eggs was a box of crayons

Is this where we find out Sharpies are poisonous?

I think the bestest Christmas balls are Schweddy's delicious balls!

Looks pretty neat, but for $200 - dayum.

I wouldn't shell out that much.

Hmmm... I wonder...

I know xob - you sold me the damn thing with your cute pics and description... then I saw the price and realized it was WAY out of my budget.

Cheaper than going to a tattoo parlor to get your balls inked.

If you like that sort of thing, you might like this as well. An inexpensive (comparatively) 3d printer.

That won't cover what you have, and it plain, no designs, which it the point.

I'm constantly amazed at the enormous amount of ingenuity and effort people put into useless shit. Why can't this inventiveness and energy be channeled into stopping global warming or something?

....but wait a minute..... as someone so actively in favor of ink and piercing -both "useless" adornments, isn't it a little rich to criticise others for seeking new ways to decorate their environment?
Cloud Thursday Sep 9 10:53 PM
perhaps, although I don't really concede the analogy. I'm certainly in favor of decorative arts and more beauty in the world. I was more thinking of the engineering and software that went into this thing, which is far more complex than the application of needles to flesh.

B. This device is a machine to allow a person to create art, using an egg and colored pens, instead of a canvas and paint brushes. So all art is useless then??

It's a 3-D spirograph! Want.

Each axis is controlled by a stepper motor. Stepping and testicles, should not be used in the same sentence.
monster Friday Sep 10 05:09 PM
I think any sentence with stepping and testicles would have quite a wring to it....
