CNC Tattoo Machine?

So I was reading Skin Deep, a Tattoo magazine, and I got to thinking. Why hasn’t anyone played with making a Tattoo machine controlled by a computer?

What really makes me wonder this, is the movie Starship Troopers.
In the one scene They show the guy getting a tattoo, with a laser etching style

About 28-29 seconds in they show the tattoo being “Laser-etched” onto his arm.

Anyways, I know it’s possible, It’s nothing but a machine controlled by another machine. The only question is who’s brave enough to make/use it.

of Course the machine would require extensive testing, probably need to be hooked up with a kinect or something to get the proper dimensions of the arm/hand/whatever that is getting the tattoo. But Come on, should be simple compared to half the stuff I’ve seen on Hackaday

If anyone DOES decide they like this idea and go to put it into a physical item, Test it out on Oranges, Pigskin, melons(edible kind not the booby kind) or even Leather(how cool would it be to have a Tattooed wallet?)

Anyways…Just a quick Rambling question at 3:50AM EST…

[HOW TO] Batch Zipping or Compressing Multiple Folders into Multiple Zip/rar fIles

I’ve tried for awhile to look for a solution to my problem with compressing multiple folders into separate files… I tried Command line to no avail.

Since I couldn’t get the command line to work, instead I downloaded Winrar

Winrar has an option to zip Multiple folders into their own separate Zip Files.

e.g.
C:/Files/Fables 01/ into C:/Files/Fables 01.zip

C:/Files/Fables 02/ into C:/Files/Fables 02.zip

C:/Files/Fables 03/ into C:/Files/Fables 03.zip

and so on

With Winrar OPEN to the Folder that contains the folders you want to zip

  • Select all folders you want zipped/rared
  • Click “ADD” or “Alt+A” or “Commands>Add files to Archive
  • Select Rar or Zip
  • Go to “Files” Tab
  • Check “Put each file to separate archive” Under the Archives Box

When you’ve got any other settings you like fixed hit OK and boom Multiple Zips of Multiple Folders…worked sooooo much easier than command line 7zip
