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."

James J Murtagh's insight:

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

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

Brandon Smart's curator insight, March 20, 2013 6:48 AM

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.

3D printer builds new jaw bone for transplant - Telegraph

3D printer builds new jaw bone for transplant - Telegraph | 3D Printing & It's Implications for the Near Future | Scoop.it
An 83-year-old woman has become the first person to have a 3D printer-created jaw fitted.
James J Murtagh's insight:

An example of how 3D Printing is ALREADY being used to change lives! An entire jaw-bone was printed and fitted for an 83-year old patient. "Shortly after waking up from the anaesthetics the patient spoke a few words, and the day after the patient was able to speak and swallow normally again."

3D Printing Takes on the Final Frontier: Food

3D Printing Takes on the Final Frontier: Food | 3D Printing & It's Implications for the Near Future | Scoop.it
James J Murtagh's insight:

This resource assumes a very interesting point of view. It dicusses the implications that 3D printed food may have for astronauts, reducing waste and requiring less storage space (a large concern for extended space travels).
