A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

Craft ROBO

Technology benefits all of us...benevolently kissing the foreheads of our vocations and avocations, saving us time, effort, and grief, and making the impossible possible. Even though it might sound illogical, almost all handicraft flirts with technology. Personal printing technologies are evolving at a rate that is almost too fast to follow. A few months ago, Versalaser, the first desktop laser engraving machine made its debut. Building-sized 3D printers are on the horizon. Now, papercraft enthusiasts can buy the Craft ROBO, a desktop printer with a built-in cutting head. It cuts your papercraft projects as it prints them! Their website (um...how's your Japanese?) features downloadable templates of robots, dinosaurs, and some great boxes and bags. I'm waiting for some Mary-Kate Olsen paper dolls...maybe they could partner with Goodwill.
