    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

    That is something to laugh at - for the multiple tool collection mentality in us, but I have seen some quality work done with less tools than that in some 3rd world countries. That would be a boon for some of those people whose artistry is in their hearts and hands instead of the tool.

    It looks dangerous and would be in our hands but it could produce a huge financial benefit in some 3rd world countries..

    I want to criticize it on one hand, and yet realize the how much it could improve the lifestyle for some.

      Real or fake?
      I would argue its fake.
      There seems to be no saw blade height adjustment. or means of bevel angle adjustment.
      No Fence - miter or rip, which seems to be one of the enduring features of a saw although as we have seen, people use it freehand.
      The drill seems to be unusable with no speed adjustment or quill, and it share an axis with the saw.
      and there's no fence for the jointer-planer, also a practically necessary part. Finally, the complete lack of any guards.

      While I would not be surprised people would actually use it, no company in their right mind would make it.

      On the other hand.... similar devices seem to exist so maybe its real

            It might be fake here but I have seen in person (not in ads) strange multi use tools between Japan, the Philippines, Thailand, etc. Lately Temu has had some multi use tools too. India has some strange tools and shops on YouTube that remind me of the pre-WWII shops that were still in existence in the early 50's. I used to go with my dad to some of those old shops and quonset hut shops and remember some old tools that are no longer in existence - too dangerous and too inefficient by the 60's.

                  The main difference is the compactness; principles are the same! These are not original ideas.

                    There was a time in history where the electric motor was 50% or more of the cost of a tool. I f you could find a way to build three or more tools with one motor it saved space and money. That time has long past. The machine pictured in the OP is not, in my opinion, a decent implementation of a multi tool. I don't think turning a Radial Arm saw into a jointer / shaper / router / drill press /air compressor etc. was particularly effective either, but a lot of people tried it.

                    The ShopSmith is a decent implementation of the mutli tool as is the one pictured below. There are of course compromises.
