Lewihe Play 69 Euro 3d printer kit from Spain

This must be the cheapest 3d printer in the world! 69 euro! BUT WAIT! It comes without some essential parts like motors, hot end, electronics ...
What is the point of this concept? I'm not sure ...
Maybe if you already have all the steppers and other parts or you salvage them you can easily get the frame ...
People are interested in it since the first batch is sold out so it must be a market niche for it ...
