If you want to see me in action, I’m presenting Tuesday (tomorrow) night on the “Future of Fast….How 3D printing is speeding up how we make everything” for the Empiricist League in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
I’m be touching on different aspects of 3D printing, from architectural applications through to bioprinting livers cells and skin grafts…and manufacturing, where I’ll be showing some very specific examples of how I use it to help bring products to market, quickly (in my case, jewelry!).
My speech is following George Musser, a former senior editor for Scientific American and the author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to String Theory, and Chuck Blake (a former research scientist at the Laboratory for Computer Science at MIT) so – big boots to fill! No pressure at all lol.
Here are links to some of the great source articles I used to pull this talk together:
- “3D-Printed House For The Moon“
- “D-Shape: Freeform Architectural 3D Printing“
- “The ‘chemputer’ that could print out any drug“
- Lee Cronin: “Making matter come alive” (Ted talk)
- “Billionaire Peter Thiel invests in the development of 3D printed meat“
- “3D bio-printers to print skin and body parts“
- “Organovo creates living, three-dimensional human tissue models for research and therapeutic applications“
- “Smallest Dental Labs Get 3D-Printed Models“
- “3D printing revolutionized manufacturing… and now forces designers to rethink what’s possible“
And maybe I’ll post the actual presentation here when it’s done…although most of it is Ted-like voiceover than actual content to read in a powerpoint deck. Will think about it!
