Risha, your portable laser cutter that works via mobile.

New technology trends seems to provide a margin of liberty for designers and makers where they can costume design and fabricate literally anything — thanks to 3D printers, CNC milling machines, and laser cutters. Yet, do these technologies open venue to _everyone_ to make anything they want? In developing countries, where there is a population of skilled labor who are either talented crafters, skilled technician, or amateur makers, getting introduced to new fabrication trends could be a major shift in reshaping their talent and opening venue to new markets of new products which they can develop, and support their economic empowerment.
