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!

What would you like to see me carve into a pumpkin? Alternatively what else could I try to carve besides a pumpkin?

I just want you to know: as a person who's dedicated my life to mathematics, I am so glad that someone as impressive as you also feels inadequate when looking up math topics on wikipedia.

What about getting a 3d scanner? People use those all the time, then they have a perfect reproduction digitally that you could map over to the carving machine. Plus you could use it for a lot of your projects

الجراح - AL-jarah
﴿لَقَد كانَ لِسَبَإٍ في مَسكَنِهِم آيَةٌ جَنَّتانِ عَن يَمينٍ وَشِمالٍ كُلوا مِن رِزقِ رَبِّكُم وَاشكُروا لَهُ بَلدَةٌ طَيِّبَةٌ وَرَبٌّ غَفورٌ﴾ [سبأ: ١٥] There was for [the tribe of] Saba’ in their dwelling place a sign: two [fields of] gardens on the right and on the left. [They were told], "Eat from the provisions of your Lord and be grateful to Him. A good land [have you], and a forgiving Lord." - Saheeh International ﴿فَأَعرَضوا فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم سَيلَ العَرِمِ وَبَدَّلناهُم بِجَنَّتَيهِم جَنَّتَينِ ذَواتَي أُكُلٍ خَمطٍ وَأَثلٍ وَشَيءٍ مِن سِدرٍ قَليلٍ﴾ [سبأ: ١٦] But they turned away [refusing], so We sent upon them the flood of the dam, and We replaced their two [fields of] gardens with gardens of bitter fruit, tamarisks and something of sparse lote trees. - Saheeh International ﴿ذلِكَ جَزَيناهُم بِما كَفَروا وَهَل نُجازي إِلَّا الكَفورَ﴾ [سبأ: ١٧] [By] that We repaid them because they disbelieved. And do We [thus] repay except the ungrateful? - Saheeh International ﴿وَجَعَلنا بَينَهُم وَبَينَ القُرَى الَّتي بارَكنا فيها قُرًى ظاهِرَةً وَقَدَّرنا فيهَا السَّيرَ سيروا فيها لَيالِيَ وَأَيّامًا آمِنينَ﴾ [سبأ: ١٨] And We placed between them and the cities which We had blessed [many] visible cities. And We determined between them the [distances of] journey, [saying], "Travel between them by night or by day in safety." - Saheeh International ﴿فَقالوا رَبَّنا باعِد بَينَ أَسفارِنا وَظَلَموا أَنفُسَهُم فَجَعَلناهُم أَحاديثَ وَمَزَّقناهُم كُلَّ مُمَزَّقٍ إِنَّ في ذلِكَ لَآياتٍ لِكُلِّ صَبّارٍ شَكورٍ﴾ [سبأ: ١٩] But [insolently] they said, "Our Lord, lengthen the distance between our journeys," and wronged themselves, so We made them narrations and dispersed them in total dispersion. Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful. - Saheeh International ﴿وَلَقَد صَدَّقَ عَلَيهِم إِبليسُ ظَنَّهُ فَاتَّبَعوهُ إِلّا فَريقًا مِنَ المُؤمِنينَ﴾ [سبأ: ٢٠] And Iblees had already confirmed through them his assumption, so they followed him, except for a party of believers. - Saheeh International ﴿وَما كانَ لَهُ عَلَيهِم مِن سُلطانٍ إِلّا لِنَعلَمَ مَن يُؤمِنُ بِالآخِرَةِ مِمَّن هُوَ مِنها في شَكٍّ وَرَبُّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَيءٍ حَفيظٌ﴾ [سبأ: ٢١] And he had over them no authority except [it was decreed] that We might make evident who believes in the Hereafter from who is thereof in doubt. And your Lord, over all things, is Guardian. - Saheeh International ﴿قُلِ ادعُوا الَّذينَ زَعَمتُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ لا يَملِكونَ مِثقالَ ذَرَّةٍ فِي السَّماواتِ وَلا فِي الأَرضِ وَما لَهُم فيهِما مِن شِركٍ وَما لَهُ مِنهُم مِن ظَهيرٍ﴾ [سبأ: ٢٢] Say, [O Muḥammad], "Invoke those you claim [as deities] besides Allāh." They do not possess an atom's weight [of ability] in the heavens or on the earth, and they do not have therein any partnership [with Him], nor is there for Him from among them any assistant. - Saheeh International

Wow!! Has this channel broken any “RUvid” subscriber records? I was on your home YT page and was very happy and surprised at how quickly you have gained over 1.7 million subs in such a short time. I realize with the Covid pandemic more people are looking for content but, DANG! That’s amazing! You and your wife make a great team. I only wish I had four hands so, I could literally give you 4 thumbs up! 👍👍👍👍

As a cartographer, the way that you discuss projections is quite good. It explains the struggles that building this sort of display of the world in a great way. I may use it in the future as a teaching aid!

You can use kinect azure to get depth image of your wife face. Then project depth image same way you project gray image on pumpkin. Depth values should control how deep carving tool goes into pumpkin. Even more, you can use kinect to scan pumpkin and get more details about surface.
