Still painting your Easter eggs by hand? Get with the technology, people!

This nifty Egg-Bot by Bruce Shapiro (who was previously featured on Neatorama back in 2006) can draw intricate designs on eggs or any round objects like the lightbulb above:

You design the patterns in the free app Inkscape, and the bot draws them using fine-point Sharpies, engraving tools, or other implements. The decorated eggs come out so beautiful that people have asked whether using an Egg-Bot is “cheating.” A healthier attitude is to think of the Egg-Bot as one more tool in the egg decorator’s arsenal.
