Sonic Cutter

from How to Make Something that makes almost anything, not How to make almost anything

A handheld cutting tool that will revolutionize the way makers build.

Sonic Cutter performs like a knife vibrating 50000 per second, with main components utilizing a servo motor, ultrasonic horn, and photocell light detector LED sensor. Sonic Cutter is easy to use. Once a shape of the desired cut-out is procured, simply take a photo with the cutter’s interface, upload image, place Sonic Cutter on a fresh medium, firmly hold it down as it cuts, and enjoy your finished creation.
