Hi John,

What an interesting device, I have not seen this before – but… I can’t help thinking that just one sneeze during tool setting could spell disaster.  ;D

Let's see... if the cat parks his rear end on the divice... I see a $20 endmill crashing into the vise.

I wince when I see things like that, dont like the wireless game controllers being used either. Maybe I am just a bit over sensitive as I use bigger machines that can do serious damage not only to themselves but to people but even a wee desktop machine can injure someone.

I agree Hood.  Looks like a neat device for some things but machines aren't one of them IMO.  There are some wireless controls that I would consider but game pads are not one of those either.  I can imagine a CB radio or cordless telephone signal jogging my Z and pinching my finger making my boo boo ache.  ;D

You can dial in certain channels with the FRO slider on a stepper machine.   :)  Sometimes they make my mill dance.  Other times it break dances........... or has seizures....... not sure which it is really but I try to stay away form those stations.  ;D
