What is the future of manufacturing, design, and creativity? How are 3D printing and the maker movement shifting the global economy?
Big questions, we know...That's why we've lined up two leading experts (Chris Anderson of Wired Magazine and author of The Long Tail and Makers, and our own Pete Weijmarshausen) to discuss how 3D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing and democratizing creation for everyone.
Here's a little snippet of the proposal:
Sharing their perspectives from the front lines, Chris and Peter will outline the key trends of Industrial Revolution 3.0: collaborative design, open access, creative commerce, green production, and a DIY ethos. They will discuss the limitations of mass manufacturing and explain why digital fabrication enables individuals to find and make products that truly meet their unique needs.
What open source did for software, 3D printing can do for physical things...
Last year at SXSW, mobile-social-local apps were the talk of the town. This year, we hope to shift the conversation from bits to atoms.
