Kagan: “We’re really interested in how traditional fabrication and design can be combined with digital fabrication and design. The way that we do things borrows from woodworking techniques used 300 years ago paired with tools they’re using now.” Justin: “Kagan was trained in traditional woodworking, whereas I come at this fabrication thing from a more digital perspective with laser cutters and the like. Most people treat the CNC router as this intimidating tool that you have to have some computer nerd running, but we just treat it as another tool in the shop. It’s like the table saw for us. Like all those other tools, you just have to learn how to use it.” Kagan: “It’s also a tool that, for us, has to be combined with other tools.

Also, I know the multi-screen functionality is intended for getting the most out of your mobile devices, but I don’t see why EE couldn’t have built an app for PCs and Macs, too. I’m told this is under consideration.
