On a Sunday afternoon many men like to get out their carpentry tools and start a little DIY weekend project. With the invention of a nifty tool known as the Handibot, carpentry projects can be created, cut and designed entirely through the use of a smartphone.

Shaped like a wood sander, the Handibot uses a compact CNC (computer numerically controlled) mill that lets a handyman create cuts, patterns and drill holes entirely through a smartphone. With this innovative technology, the Handibot lets jacks-of-all-trades use the CNC technology to design larger-scale and more complicated wood projects in the comfort of their own home. The app integrated in the Handibot helps create precision cuts to upscale your average wood-working project.
