The geeky way to decorate Easter eggs

Let the egghunt begin!


Since it’s the Easter weekend, I thought we could geek out a little bit. Think you’re too old to decorate eggs? Think again – the Eggbot 2.0 decorating kit is every geek’s dream.

Once assembled, the device connects to a computer running Windows, Mac, or Linux, and allows you to print whatever patterns you want onto your eggs. The kit can also draw on other spherical objects like ping-pong balls, light bulbs, and even holiday ornaments. The kit costs $195 and can be put together without too much difficulty. You then download a free drawing program called Inkscape to draw your pattern and then print it directly to the Eggbot 2.0.

As you can see above, the possibilities are only limited to your imagination – for the adventurous ones there’s even a deluxe ‘Ostrich egg‘ decorating kit if you’re really into your egg art.
