Video of the Day: Chris Anderson on the 3D Printer Revolution

Wired magazine explains:

“With the advent of affordable, advanced desktop 3-D printers like the Makerbot Replicator and Cubify’s Cube, we’re standing at the starting line of a manufacturing revolution. These tools, once reserved for top-level firms, give curious minds everywhere rapid prototyping capabilities for almost any type of project. Online 3-D object storehouses like Shapeways and Thingiverse offer immediate access to an ever-growing collection of printable and manipulatable objects, removing supply chain limitations. And new, straightforward software like Autodesk’s 123D series and TinkerCAD are allowing people to invent 3-D printable creations formerly relegated to creude sketches on scratch paper.

One of the biggest questions about this revolution, though, is what ways we’ll see it develop and spread. Chris Anderson, Editor-in-Chief of Wired, DIY robotics enthusiast, and author of recently released Makers: The New Industrial Revolution, discusses that notion in this month’s cover story. He also sat down with us to explain how we got to this moment, and where it will take us.”
