HandiBot video

2013-08-29 16:17:00.901618+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Shadow forwarded along this promo video for ShopBot/HandiBot CNC cutters (YouTube). There's a vision here that I haven't seen for CNC yet, I'm still not sold that I need one in my shop, but I'm fascinated especially since this shows a lot of carpentry, rather than woodworking, applications.

Awesome device. As I consider replacing the steps to the front door of our house, I'm wondering what interesting design options this would enable. It's a lot more interesting to me than a small 3d printer.

It's an interesting device, but I'd cut it short of awesome. "Cute" is closer. It has a lot of decorative applications, but less so for improving construction. Of the few applications for basic work I see, it's more cumbersome than some of the better innovations. I'm hoping to see more practical versions of the tech soon.
