A 3D printer for wood

It does the carving for you.

SlashGear

If you like the looks of wooden computers or gadgets but don't want to pay the price , this may be worth the investment for the DIY types out there.

Sears' "Craftsman CompuCarve" can carve complicated patterns in sylvan objects, according to SlashGear, kind of "a printer for wood" that even comes with its own software. (We seem to have a 3D scanner-printer fixation today, for some reason.)

Unfortunately, it's not the cheapest thing in the world, at $1,899. But think of all the money you'll be saving on your next TV alone. Maybe it'll work on pumpkins too.
