In the video below Glenn Beck discusses 3D printing and technology with Hod Lipson of Cornell University, author of "Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing". They talk about the people who have power, about the future that technology could free people and transform politics and economics, as well as technology itself.
What would you create if you had a machine that could make (almost) anything? Hod Lipson's book "Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing" offers you practical and imaginative insight into the question, "How will 3D printing change my life?"
Fabricated is scheduled for release on February 11, 2013.
From the publishers:
Fabricated tells the story of 3D printers, humble manufacturing machines that are bursting out of the factory and into schools, kitchens, hospitals, even onto the fashion catwalk. The magic happens when you plug a 3D printer into today's mind-boggling digital technologies. Add to that the Internet, tiny, low cost electronic circuitry, radical advances in materials science and biotech and voila! The result is an explosion of technological and social innovation.
Fabricated is an informative and fast-paced exploration of 3D printing technologies and the people who use them. You'll take a journey to design studios, businesses, schools, and cutting-edge research labs. Based on hundreds of hours of interviews, Fabricated explores the promise and peril of a 3D printed present and future.
- Businesses will be liberated from the tyrannies of economies of scale
- Factories and global supply chains will shrink, finding themselves closer to their customers
- The law, already reeling from digital media, will once again need to be redefined
- Our environment might breathe easier in a 3D printed economy, or it could choke on a rising tide of plastic
- 3D printed digital and intelligent, adaptive materials will change our relationship with the physical world
Here is another video from Canada's TV Ontario, Hod Lipson discusses the future of 3-D printing in his lecture entitled, Programmable Matter: The Shape of Things to Come.
