Manufacturing drives Innovation.  A fact that has been lost in the off-shoring of whole industires just for the purposes of low cost labor.  The good news is the Re-shoring of US manufacturing is finally on the road back HOME.

20 Game-Changing Technology Trends That Will Create Both Disruption and Opportunity on a Global Level | Flash Foresights from Daniel Burrus | Big Think | Made Different | Scoop.it

No matter what industry you’re in, your company can’t survive without technology. And these days, even non-technical employees know that technology goes way beyond desktop computers and networks. From smart phones and tablet computers to mobile apps and cloud-based technology, there’s a plethora of technological advancements to not only keep track of, but also to profit from. To stay competitive, your organization needs to anticipate the most significant technology trends that are shaping your business and then develop innovative ways to use them to your advantage, both inside and outside of your organization. Remember, if it can be done, it will be done. If you don’t use these technologies to create a competitive advantage, someone else will.

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste | Made Different | Scoop.it

Two years ago, a Dutch student named Dirk Vander Kooij was designing furniture and preparing for his graduation project when he was inspired by an old 3D printer. So he got his hands on an industrial robot from a Chinese production line and reprogrammed it into a 3D printer to print furniture using recycled materials from old refrigerators."

Imagine if you had had the chance to be in room in the mid-70’s attending presentations from the likes of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs?  I believe that maybe 20 years from now, I will think back and recall when I sat at the US Patent and Trademark Office auditorium and listened to additive manufacturing machine makers 3D Systems, Stratasys, MakerBot, Ex One, and EOS, and innovative companies such as Shapeways share the creative ways they were making new products that had never been imagined before.

Origami-inspired Prototyping | Made Different | Scoop.it

Laser machine tools can help speed product development cycles for a range of materials.  As product lifecycles shrink, there is increasing pressure on research and engineering personnel to speed the new product development cycle. A variety of technologies, from traditional CNC machining to waterjets and 3D printing, are now widely employed to enable the quick creation of 3D prototype parts directly from computer-aided design (CAD) files
