    The "FreeD" - Handheld CNC, could this help custom/kitcar building?

    the freeD

    The FreeD uses CAD software, magnets and and some genius to create a handheld CNC!

    This could be used to replace or aid the traditional frame, foam & shape method.

    Thats a pretty revolutionary device, I guess if you cant afford a 5 axis router for certain jobs, this little machine would carve out small models pretty good.
