In 2014, 3D printing will go mainstream. A new book, "3D Printing: Rise of the Third Industrial Revolution" scrutinizes what this will mean for the world and the future of humanity. Going beyond the headline grabbing stories of 3D printed guns this book by Aaron Council and Michael Petch graphically illustrates how 3D printing will change the world.

The authors thoroughly examine the history, the current market and the future. Themes explored include how 3D printing is used in next-generation games consoles such as the Xbox One and how a robot can be created by combining these technologies. A discussion on the impact of 3D printing on medicine and healthcare is covered in depth, including how 3D printing will allow drugs to be downloaded from the Internet and printed using common household materials.

The authors, Aaron Council, the founder and CEO of the Gyges3D online community, and Michael Petch, the CEO of Black Dog Consulting, explore how 3D printing is likely to change the current economic system for the better. The importance of the technology for the future of society and how it will create jobs in both the U.S and the developing world is given a detailed chapter. Political and social implications of 3D printing such as a reduction in materialism and even an end to conflict are all explored as by-products of this remarkable technology.

"3D Printing: Rise of the 3rd Industrial Revolution" is available as a free download from Amazon for a limited time.

is this deal still going on 03/11. I see regular price listed and don't know if it discounts when you purchase. Suggestions?

is this still available or did the deal pass. When I look on amazon it looks like it is back to full price, but I didn't know if it auto-discounted when you did the 1-click purchase.
