New Crafting Tool | i-magicut Ribbon Cutter

I came across a video for this tool from Imaginisce and I wanted to get your opinion. I have to be honest, I don’t see the need for this tool, it seems to make a simple process more complicated. But then I don’t use a whole lot of ribbon in my scrapping. You can see the video demonstration here. What do you think? Yay or Nay?

    I can’t watch videos as I’m at work – but if it’s just a devise that cuts ribbon, then it’s pointless! If it somehow seals the end to stop it fraying, then it might be a must-have tool!

    I like the concept of it, but think it is too slow…
    I like the concept for sewing particularly since I sew for my DD who is 2 and so I do get to use ribbon and other trims.
    The BUT is – that it takes 10 seconds to cut and seal sheer ribbon and even more time for grossgrain ribbon… I would forget what I was doing taking that much time holding down the cut button…

    Hi.

    We figured it out.

    Lori’s batteries were running down on this prototype tool.

    The i-magicut cuts much, much quicker with fresh batteries :)

    I actually have a contraption like this , from years ago, that is in a kitchen gadet storage box. Only back then it was called a bag sealer. You used it to reseal chip bags and such. Same shape, same operation. battery powered, heats only when open. You slide it along the chip bag to seal. But, it also had a thin wire in the middle and if you held it too long, it melted the bag at the point you stopped. I’m going to have to dig it out. However, on the other hand…I take my ribbon and snip it and add a tad of glue on the ends..done. no batteries to worry about, no cost,no waiting, no contraption to store. LOTS QUICKER!!
    For crafting gadgets..this gets a 0 out of 10 in my book. Just my two cents worth:)

    I just watched a video on this product, and the company did additional testing and says it does most ribbon in a short time. I think the time they gave for the sheer ribbon was 2 seconds… they said their batteries in the demo video were low.
