Yeah, it always amazes me when I hear people at the top of their professions where 3D printing will have a major impact speculating on " will be wonderful to be able to do this and that", etc, when WE ARE ALREADY DOING IT! The word clueless comes to mind.

Maybe the lack of enthusiasm is due to HP's decision to sell off most of its hardware division, HP may be out of the hardware game altogether by the time home 3d printing becomes a mass market.

This interview shows a lack of knowledge, leadership, and vision on Mr. Joshi's part.

Its not like Shapeways is a secret. Do a search for "3D printing" and Shapeways is the 3rd or 4th link. People are already using 3D printing for personalization.

I am saddened by how everything is "long term" and their focus is on traditional markets. It seems that, like with the doomed HP Touchpad, HP is waiting for the market to just appear, rather than trying to create a new market themselves.

I agree Arun. My feelings of the interview is that they are in the 3D Printing market as a reactive step.

They are not really saying anything that is amazing or revolutionary.
