*edit, sort of*
I see. The Mindstorms NXT system is what the milling machine is based on. That is a very cool toy.

That's incredible as a proof of concept, but is it available for sale? Some young aspiring engineers would be over the moon if they had a LEGO CNC router.

Speaking of CNC, check out this industrial 5-axis CNC mill made by Daishin Seiki.

Anything CNC is amazing stuff. There's endless manufacturing potential with those machines.

At first I read "Lego 3d Killing Machine" so now I'm a tad disappointed. Either way, cool video.
