    There have been laser based modelers out there for a few years now but I think the break-through with the above device is that by using a different technique it has really broken the entry level price point for these types of machines.

    At under $1,000 USD, I know some guys who would absolutely love to have one of them in their garage. For me the price would still have to come down a bit but, yes, I would love to have one of them also.
