One final Halloween infographic this year is the Infographic Pumpkin from InfographicWorld.com.  

Whats better than a pumpkin carving? A pumpkin carved with Lasers, that’s what. Having carved pumpkins most of my life, and getting heavily into it in 2008 with my Obama pumpkins. I decided to combine my love of information and pumpkin carving to create the first infographic pumpkin. Long story short, doing it with stencils and by hand was a good waste of three 40lb pumpkins, a dozen hours and a few exacto knife war wounds. As luck would have it though, the very day i was about to throw in the towel I stumbled upon a Microsoft employee who carves pumpkins with lasers. Being that lasers are just about the most awesome thing in the world, i couldn’t pass up seeing if something could be arranged.

11 days, a few setbacks and a trip to the Microsoft campus to deliver a pumpkin and the fruit(that’s right, pumpkin is a fruit) of our labor was complete:

What a fun project.  Great job Justin!
