Arc 'n Spark

(no subject)

Hmm, this is interesting...

I also bet it'd be possible to replace the drum/rail mechanism with X/Y carriages, set it to smaller distance changes between pixels (higher resolution), replace the pen with a hot somewhat-pointed element, chuck a board in it, and burn 1-bit B&W pictures into the wood.

...or is that not such a great idea? Would definitely need to keep an eye on it while it was running, maybe keep an extinguisher nearby, too...
