Will 3D Printing Change the World?

"..3D Printing could have a game-changing impact on consumer culture, copyright and patent law, and even the very concept of scarcity on which our economy is based. From at-home repairs to new businesses, from medical to ecological developments, 3D Printing has an undeniably wide range of possibilities which could profoundly change our world."

Brandon Smart's insight:

PBS presents this video with the help of numerous personalities throughout the technological world, such as writers for popular technology magazines such as Wired. This video presents more basic information on 3D Printing, but expands on this by giving examples of how it can benefit individual fields. Of particular interest is the segment presented by Joseph Flaherty on 3D Printing in Medicine. This is an excellent example of how in the future, this technology will be used to benefit humanity. This will be very useful in my paper. The people involved in this video conclude that 3D Printing will be massive in the near future, and I need to find more sources to corroborate their views.

If you don't know what 3D Printing is, this video is a good place to start

Great examples of how 3D Printing can be used to benefit humanity. The creation of food and organs is already becoming a reality!

Ryan Murphy's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:38 PM

A great introduction to 3D Printing.

Anthony Atala: Printing a human kidney | Video on TED.com

'TED Talks Surgeon Anthony Atala demonstrates an early-stage experiment that could someday solve the organ-donor problem: a 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney.'


Via Luca Baptista
Brandon Smart's insight:

Surgeon Anthony Atala speaks about 3D Printing and what is possible in the field of medicine at TED. This speech focuses on printing human organs, and he demonstrates an experiment which has the capability of solving the lack of organs available for transplant. His patient Luke Massella also speaks, who successfully received a 3D Printed bladder. This is an incredible example of how 3D Printing will be making its mark in the near future, and just foreshadows what may soon be possible with science in terms of human life. I have a collection of information regarding printed organs now, and it will likely make up a large portion of my essay.

Interview: Solidoodle founder sees a coming 3D-printed age | TechHive | 3D Printing in the Near Future | Scoop.it
We speak with Sam Cervantes, founder of Solidoodle, to get the lowdown on where 3D printing is today and where it will be going tomorrow.

Brandon Smart's insight:

TechHive, a website reporting on technological advancement, interviewed Sam Cervantes, who is the founder of 3D Printer company Solidoodle. Sam Cervantes indicates that he is confident in the future of 3D printing, and outlines some areas where his printers are seeing more use. This article is useful to me as it is a reliable source pointing out increasing popularity of this technology in areas such as education. While not as impressive as 3D printed organs, the possibility of 3D printing becoming integral in schools in the near future is exactly what I need for my essay.

What's the future of 3D printing? - Sci Guide (Ep 12) - Head Squeeze

Brandon Smart's insight:

Mark Champkins from Head Squeeze, which is a group of scientists, mathematicians and comedians who post responses to technology in the news on Youtube, explains what 3D Printing is and how it is used. He is concise in his descriptions of 3D printing, but only covers the basic information such as how it works, and why it is useful. I can use this information to provide an explanation as to what 3D printing is, but it will serve little use beyond that. I need to find more detailed information, particularly on the future of the technology, to supplement this.

How Will 3D Printing Impact The Manufacturing Industry?

How Will 3D Printing Impact The Manufacturing Industry? | 3D Printing in the Near Future | Scoop.it
The 3D printing industry is expected to change the landscape of the manufacturing industry over the next decade. The technology has been around since 1980s; however, more recently, it has come into the spotlight.

Via Kalani Kirk Hausman
Brandon Smart's insight:

This article written for investment blog Seeking Alpha was created by an investor with no ties to the 3D printing industry. The claims are his opinion, and will need to be corroborated by other more reliable sources. The article speaks of possible developments in the manufacturing industry through 3D printing, and the author raises some good arguments. Advancement into the manufacturing industry will be a significant step for 3D printing. I will include this in my essay, but first I need to find more evidence to back this up.

Ryan Murphy's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:36 PM

3D printing is one of the newest frontiers for Engineering and Information Technologies in the future.  It is a relatively old technology, having existed for 30 years already, however recently, with the decrease in hardware size and needs 3D printing has caught many peoples eyes.

 

I think that in the current growth market of Information Technology, 3D Printing could be one of the next big growth markets, especially when you consider its ability to create extremely small and technically advanced pieces of machinery, like say, Computer Components?

Foster + Partners Unveil Plans for 3D-Printed Moon Base!

Foster + Partners Unveil Plans for 3D-Printed Moon Base! | 3D Printing in the Near Future | Scoop.it

Foster + Partners have just made an exciting announcement that they will be partnering with the European Space Agency to begin research on 3D printing structures for the moon!

Brandon Smart's insight:

This article written by journalist Lori Zimmer for 'inhabitat', a webblog on the latest advances in technology and how they can allow for a sustainable future, is about plans the European Space Agency has made in conjuction with architecture company Foster + Partners to use 3D Printing on the moon to establish a permanent moon base. This article is written with information sourced directly from the ESA and so is guarenteed to be reliable. This is an excellent example of upcoming innovations and advances in the field of 3D Printing. The viability of this project is still being tested and so it is only a potential advancement even though the ESA seems to be confident it is viable, but I will still include it in my paper.
