I know I just expressed my relative disinterest in technology, but then I came across this.
I will be buying one, just not the first version. It can etch glass for stained glass panels. It can engrave leather to replace my one of a kind lincrusta. I can carve wood for moldings. I don't have words for how giddy this makes me. Especially since Lincrusta in England estimated it would be 20,000 pounds just to carve a new roller (if they were even willing to do it).
So yeah, technology is pretty cool after all....
Maybe they'll send me one because I'm a blogger. I bet I could beta test the shit out of it.
