3D Printing Clothes At Home Could Be A Reality By 2050

3D Printing Clothes At Home Could Be A Reality By 2050 | Made Different | Scoop.it

"That’s why Joshua Harris’ clothes printer has gained so much traction recently. His idea centers around the concept of feeding your old clothes into his machine, you can then use that material to instantly print the next outfit you’ve had your eye on.

With 3D printing becoming so much more advanced, you may also be able to purchase cartridges of material from your favorite brand such as Nike, insert it into the machine and print out this season’s hottest item."

If you look at the diference in technology from 1976 to today (same 37 year span) it's not that crazy of a claim.  I'm sure there will be LOTS of tech 40 years from now that will seem like magic.  Not sure we''ll see the small size the renderings suggest, but I could see paper-based clothing (one time disposable wear) being able to be printed within the next 10 years if there was a demand for it.
