Instructables member bbstudio set out to carve an eggshell as much as possible while still retaining the shape and the image of the egg; this was the result. "Yes, it is a real goose egg shell. I use a high speed engraving tool called a paragraver and a very light touch. I hold them in my hand while I carve them ... There is no resin involved. As a matter of fact, this egg is still not treated with anything." (Instructables via MAKE)Read More
We've all seen two yolks come out of an egg before, but we've probably never had two yolks pop out of an egg because the second yoke was inside another egg, which is exactly what happens in this clip from Japan.

How many of us have been standing over a hot skillet, egg in hand, breakfast nearly made, and paralyzed with dread about the exact nutrition information for the chicken ovum you're about to prepare? Too many. But thanks to some clever folks on the Internet and your handy-dandy EggBot egg printing system, you can have all the egg-related nutrition information right at your fingertips! No longer will you wonder how much sodium (65mg) or cholesterol (215mg) is in each egg. Throw off the yolk (no pun intended) of oppression, and embrace the new egg-based knowledge economy! This is where I tip my hand and admit that I had no idea what an EggBot was at first. Thankfully, I do now. Having seen what they're capable of, I know that my future has a lot of instant noodles in it while I scrimp and save to buy one. (Makerbot via BoingBoing, image via Thingiverse) Read More
