Hand-held CNC router
Shaper Tool's Origin is a hand-held router that can be steered by a smart-phone sized guidance system. The user guides the router's cursor within a general guide shown on the display, and the system keeps the cutting head on track. It uses a visual marker system to orient itself with the workpiece, then scans the surface to generate a map and if moved too far off course, the blade automatically retracts. A large array of downloadable designs and templates can be found online at the ShaperHub library.
