Robotics and 3D printing can help America make a more permanent play for manufacturing jobs and compete with off shore low cost labor, believes Rodney Brooks, CEO, Rethink Robotics. "As a result American manufacturers and American workers will be more competitive on the global stage," states Brooks.

Problem: Modern, global manufacturing utilizes low-cost wage labor and mass production seperating the designers & innovators from the fabrication of their products.

Solution: What if innovators had the tools to design, print and assemble their own hardware products?

Technology: Advances in robotics, like Rodney's Baxter robot, 3D printing, such as Form Labs desktop stereolithography machine, and CAD tools will help individuals make real products.
