It is really exciting to see this tech becoming available to the consumer. Soon products such as these will be a common household device, like a microwave or ink jet printer... 
Glowforge uses a beam of light the width of a human hair to cut, engrave, and shape designs from a variety of materials. Design with the software you're used to. Not a designer? Choose a design from a dozen of categories like personal electronics, jewelry, toys, furniture, leather goods, lighting, containers, art, and more. 
Glowforge is compatible with Mac, PC and tablets. Currently it is available for pre-order only and starts with the price of $1,995. The units will begin shipping out December 2015.
