ctrp326 The Future of Making Things

Bre Pettis envisions a future where people don’t just go out and buy things when something is needed or breaks. He envisions a future where people will once again make things themselves, at home. During one of our legendary breakfast sessions during the 26C3 in Berlin on the last day of 2009, we talked about his vision and his company – Makerbot Industries.

Flattr this!

    I love this idea of a machine that can make small things I need. I wonder when the machines can work with other material than plastic. Or maybe this is the material that’s cheap and easy to manipulate.

    it makes me a little bit afraid that fiction becomes reality type movies and books eg brave new world and the movie Gattaca, this time the man makes God want to be just be the man

    Hey Luiz.. perhaps one very interesting aspect is that eventually the makerbots might be able to produce parts to build other makerbots.. robots making other robots!
