    1. I agree.

      I see the writer’s intent however, so maybe “CNC Eye Candy” would be appropriate? I watched it twice, and almost drooled on the keyboard.

      It is an awesome demonstation of what is available today. Nice find.

    2. When the word porn is used to describe non-sexual things, it still carries a connotation of over-the-top indulgence. Google “war porn” and “consumer porn” if you don’t believe me.

      I think it’s pretty pr0nographic to throw this much high-tech machining prowess into a product that no one will ever wear. I can think of lots more useful things to do with a block of metal that size… but it sure is fun to look at!
