    To me, that sounds like something a super hero would use. But I was given these as a Christmas gift from someone who knows my recent sewing interest. I doubt I will actually use these much, but they were fun to play with this morning. I think I might have more use for them with paper than with fabric.

    Those look so cool & fun to use!
    How do you keep the line from moving as you cut?

    Interesting. How do they work? Does it mark the fabric some way and then allow you to cut it with laser beams?

    The lazer would be very handy squaring up backing, or your quilted top. you could mark along the lazer line and then rotary cut it :D:D:D

    Use the force, Hannahjo! :lol:

    I don't use scissors much, more the rotary cutter. But what a neat gift!

    they'd be great if you wanted to mark your fabric first, but other than that, I'd use them for paper. tee hee Great thought though.

    A lady in my small sewing group has a pair of these scissors and I have never seen them with the lasor since the battery has died and she never thinks to replace them. But I do know that she said she loved them.

    I have a pair of those. The laser is not actually in a straight line with the blades though.

    One of my geek sons gave me a pair of these scissors a couple of years ago. I loved them. I even used them as a laser pointer in my class room. I need to replace the battery.
    He got mine from Thinkgeek.com. Yep, it is a real place.

    Oh my!! I'm laughing at myself, because my first thought was that a laser beam that cut fabric would also be dangerous! :oops: :oops:

    I'd have trouble keeping it lined up on the mark, so I'd still be cutting crooked!

    I watched a video someplace to use these for squaring up your quilt before binding. I think it would work good.

    Never heard of these. Will have to see if I can see one sometime. Do not remember seeing or hearing about them locally.
