Default Shaper Origin - new handheld CNC - anyone have one?

I am considering buy this new hand held CNC
https://shapertools.com/
Want to know if anyone has one? this is going to change woodworking.
my big question is how fast can you move the router and how responsive is the CNC movement. Meaning, can I cut a large arch at a regular speed (don't really know what the FPM is) but a typically FPM that i might use with a hand held. OR do I have to move super slow for this CNC to keep up. Any help would be great. thank

No one has one that I'm aware of here Scott . There's been a few threads regarding it , but no one has come forward and bought one that I have noticed .
Would be nice if it works as advertised, and I'm hoping it's here to stay .
I was hoping to be the first to own one , but it's a big expedature for something that may be a passing fad .
There's videos on it , so that should give you somewhat of an idea about speed

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Just watching the video some parts appear to be around normal speed and some parts look slower. Do you want to be the first Scott? Lots of us would like to know. There are other variables too such as programming time, how much the tape costs and how hard is it lay down, and probably more than I can't foresee.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I just pulled the trigger and ordered one. Actually it is for a school I teach at in Scotland, but I get to play with it first!
Best of both worlds. I will keep everyone posted.

The project was much more interesting than the tool ;-)

I like the results and the complexity of the shapes he was able to create.

I'll burn that bridge when I come to it
