I've been wondering if I could turn my haircut robot into a pumpkin carving robot. Cutting hair and carving pumpkins isn't really that different if you think about it - both cut stuff off a roughly pumpkin sized spheroid. In this video I do just that and carve some pretty amazing pumpkins with it. This was a bit of a sprint to get done - I can't wait until next year to make even more insane pumpkins with it!
