DIY dFabPosted: June 5, 2012
All you need is:
1. a laser-cutter ( ~$6500 for materials, DIY)
2. a CNC machine ( ~$1800 for materials, DIY)
3. a 3D Printer ( ~$800 for materials, DIY)
Its amazing to see how these seemingly complex and exclusive machines can one day be a common tool for our daily use. With this future in our hands, how will it influence the way we live, consume, and shop? By bringing the manufacturing process into our very own households, which industries can we eliminate and which new ones will emerge out of it? Is this exactly what we need in a potential post-capitalist world? Just something to ponder upon.
So, any takers?
P.S. another cool DIY, presented to you by Nortd Labs too.
