This is the initial prototype of the laser attachment version of our product. It will shine the laser on the paper or fabric you are trying to cut and guide you. The scissors attachment will probably sell for $8.50 (cost of laser: $4, cost of switch: 50 cents, cost of battery and battery holder: ~ $1.50, cost of attachment base and ruler ~ $1 = $7 + markup)
This is the robot version of our product. We built it from Mindstorm NXT. It will follow the black line on a sewing pattern with it's light sensor and cut the fabric as it goes. Eventually we will connect it to an app so you can program it to cut certain patterns by itself, eliminating the need for paper patterns.
