Hey Phil! I just came from Michael’s where I picked up a “Cricut” for $139.00! Usually they are about $299.99, but they are on sale until the end of the month.
It’s currently a standalone auto-paper cutter (uses font/shape cartridges), but it has a USB port that the manufacturer has decided not to release drivers for. I happen to do a bit of USB protocol hacking from time to time, so I’m going to take a stab at reverse engineering the protocol. I can see lots of potential uses for this little beauty that involve attaching a Dremmel tool to the head! Ha ha!
