Digital fabrication will change the course of the future
"Digital fabrication will allow individuals to design and produce tangible objects on demand, wherever and whenever they need them."
Three-dimensional printers are already old hat to the professor. "The revolution," he writes, "is ... the ability to turn data into things and things into data. ... Scientists in a number of labs (including mine) are now working on the real thing, developing processes that can place individual atoms and molecules into any structure they want.

Will robots put us all out of work? FT Alphaville's Cardiff Garcia and Izabella Kaminska discuss how technology is making jobs obsolete at a historically high rate, and how it may be accelerating.
We had a lot of fun making this short video, which is based on a topic that’s been discussed energetically in the blogosphere and elsewhere for a few months, and which has captured Izabella’s fascination for nearly a year.
In addition to Izzy’s work, we drew on many blog posts and other readings in our discussion, and regrettably we didn’t have time to hat tip everyone in the video itself. We include those links below and thank their authors, and of course any misrepresentations are entirely our fault.
Better than human – Kevin Kelly
Will a robot take your job? – Gary Marcus
Robots and robber barons – Paul Krugman
Myth of the jobless recovery – Matt Yglesias
The end of labor – Timothy Noah
And special thanks go to Andrew Smithers and Martin Ford for the two charts we used in the video.
Another wonderful set of links can be found at Izzy’s tumblr, which you should be reading in any case. And again be sure to check out her beyond scarcity series.
