Union Bridge Labs made some rad mods to their yarn ball winder:

Part machine. Part monster. The yarn monster eats raw yarn and excretes perfectly rolled yarn balls. A wireless remote control allows for the adjustment of the speed at which the monster consumes your yarn. Yarn Monster eats other yarn winders for breakfast.
