You can have it now by attaching a sanding pad to iRobot Roomba vacuum.

Besides convenience here is reason enough to do it.

Seems to me they could come up with an appropriate "cradle" of sorts to support the orbital motion. On the other hand I imagine Festool would rethink the orbital motion itself. So maybe the new motion design would differ from a traditional orbital sander allowing it to be self-supportive.

Who (or what) will offer resistance to the reactionary torque of the sanders rotation?

When you operate the sander then you hold back or resist the rotation of the sander.

Without you the sander will just dance around unless they were to come up with some
sort of concentric, counter-rotating discs.

Festool Wish List / Autonomous orbital sander

With autonomous vehicles hitting the road why not an autonomous orbital sander? A sander that when placed on the work surface simply detects the dimension of the material and then begins the appropriate sanding pattern seems easy enough to do at this point.

Good one sparkritiAn.

The Olfa pizza cutters for fabric are also very good. They are about $30-50$ from memory... They last along time, and work on carbon fibre and fibreglass, on Kevlar the shears/scissors are better.

I can't seem to use the tool either :(
I'm in The Netherlands.

The original link isn't functional.  Here is a link to what is currently on Festool USA website.  Please note that what we have here might be different than what you have in the Netherlands and of course the prices will be different.

Ask Festool / Re: Dust extractor switching - or not

This change was based on a switch in the certification scheme (from CSA to MET). The manufacturing change was made toward the end of last year, and the updated CTs started shipping to dealers a few months ago.
