Free Hand Laser Cutting!

This awesome video is a glimpse into the future of laser cutting. Being able to free hand draw on the machine can really open laser cutter technology to artists and others who may not be familiar or comfortable drawing on the computer. 


Constructable is an interactive drafting table that produces precise physical output in every step. Users interact by drafting on the workpiece using a hand-held laser pointer. The system tracks the pointer and implements its effect by cutting the workpiece using a high-powered and fast laser cutter.
