Neat idea. It dawned on me that you could increase resolution by swiping across your original swipes at their half way marks. I could not see the rubber bands in the picture and was having a hard time trying to figure out how you kept pressure on the blades. Very Cool. :)

Instructions

This is a dangerous Fluxus-looking thing, and it needs taming. Taming in progress.

Having said that, abandon hope all ye who proceed!

1. Print the one for the machine you have.
Cupcake
* subpixel-3-blades-cupcake.stl - creates a 2 x 2 grid
Thing-O-Matic
* subpixel-4-blades-t-o-m.stl - creates a 3 x 3 grid
Replicator
* subpixel-6-blades-replicator.stl - creates a 5 x 5 grid
* subpixel-9-blades-replicator-vertical.stl - creates a 8 x 8 grid (challenging to print!)

2. Secure each blade against the pin using a rubber band inserted into the side slots.

3. Upgrade an advertisement with a subpixel grid using horizontal and vertical swipes. Remove one or more squares from the grid to create or advertise the upgrade.

BOM(B)
* SEB 10 Razor blades: amazon.com/Great-Neck-SEB10-Sheffield-Blades/dp/B00004Z2L6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341684574&sr=8-1&keywords=seb+razor
* Rubberbands (or use the ones from your asparagus): amazon.com/BAZIC-Assorted-Dimensions-Rubber-465-48P/dp/B000BLJEKU/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1341684634&sr=8-15&keywords=rubber+bands
