Have you ever heard of an autonomous cutting machine? The Goliath milling machine can roll around and cut into a slew of materials. "Goliath CNC can be positioned directly on the work surface: this innovative mode of operation makes it a machine tool with a boundless work area because it matches the workpiece’s surface." 400 of these machines have already been sold at $1850. Fun fact, it actually began as a thesis for a master's degree! Click the link to watch the goliath CNC in action.
The phrase “autonomous cutting machine” may sound like something out of Terminator but this clever little robot, called the Goliath CNC, wants to help humanity, not harm it. Created by Lorenzo Frangi, Alessandro Trifoni, and Davide Cevoli, the robot is basically a free-rolling CNC machine that can crawl over a surface and etch and cut lines into many materials.

It will in 2018. It costs $1,850. Read More
