Fast response time. Intended for actually cutting, threads, tapers, radii, rigid tapping. Graphical interface, teachable positions, proportional joystick, run your machine without mouse or keyboard.
When I need a machine it is often for a one off piece that I design partially by feel as I cut. For this, a manual machine is superior to a CNC machine with an awkward manual interface, but CNC machines are awesome when you need CNC. To this end I designed a manual interface to give a CNC machine the welcoming feel of a fully equipped manual machine, on steroids.
If you share my experience in this this respect maybe you will be interested in reading the attached user manual I wrote for the gamepad controller.
