The Guinness world record for the tallest chocolate Easter egg measured 10.39 m (34 ft 1.05 in) in height and was made by Tosca (Italy).
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest Easter egg hunt, which consisted of 501,000 eggs that were searched for by 9,753 children accompanied by their parents at the Cypress Gardens Adventure Park in Winter Haven, Florida, USA.
The machine comes with a software that allows you to map your illustration on your computer, then import the design so that Egg-Bot will meticulously draw it on your egg.
Egg-Bot can draw on both empty and raw eggs.
It also has template patterns if you need help to get your creative juices flowing.
The software is free and compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operation systems, and it only takes a USB connection to transfer over information.
The Eggbot software allows you to control the 'bot from within Inkscape-- a superb freeware illustration program -- on Mac, Windows, or Linux computers.
You can draw an image directly, trace a photograph, or import designs from other programs. You can also control the Eggbot directly from many other programs that have the ability to send serial commands over a USB port.
This will be a great product to reuse to design your own Christmas ornaments later this year.
