When & Where
Few subjects are more addictive than innovation. Specifically, world-improving, industry-changing, personally-revolutionary innovation like 3D printing. Did you know you can create a heart cell with a 3D printer? Or an ice sculpture? Or custom iPhone cases, espresso cups, high heels, lingerie, masks, toys, jaws, bones, cufflinks? Or bacon.
