Cody Price's curator insight, Today, 12:45 AM

3d printers are the new front in industrial world. They can create almost anything fro cars, candy, and even human body parts. This is the new way for our industries to move and as things grow this seems to be the next industrial revolution.

This relates to the topic in unit 6 of industrial revolution. Even though this about the one in the 19th century it is the next step in the industry world. This is the next industrial revolution mostly technology and digital items.   

 

Anna Sasaki's curator insight, Today, 2:58 AM

People are hypothesizing that the 3rd industrial revolution is coming. New innovations are coming in, left and right, with 3D printers to phones that can control your home to automatic, electric cars. Innovation is the theme to our new revolution; we are manifesting ideas which may serve as our own personal luxury, or even aid in the development in other nations whom are developing.

This article ties into the Industrial Revolution, as there will be an infinite amount of Industrial Revolutions. Some may assume that the Revolutions are done; however, they are till imminent and coming.
