Professional makers and woodworkers may be interested to know that the Shaper Origin cutter equipped with augmented reality technology will be once again available to purchase in a few days time from October 23rd, 2018 onwards priced at $2500. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the handheld cutter which is equipped with computer guided accuracy allowing users to cut with “unparalleled precision, flexibility and efficiency”.
“Origin locates itself in a workspace and makes continuous real-time adjustments while the user is cutting. The result is precision cutting—wherever you need it. Use Origin to create designs wherever you work. Make adjustments on-site, on the fly, no computer required.”
Thanks to its intelligent cutting technology the Shaper Origin uses visual markers and displays a guide on the device’s screen allowing users to cut with more precision. If you start to stray too far from your design the blade will automatically retract and cutting will stop.
