Artists, Designers, Entrepreneurs and creators of all kinds - REJOICE! The tools that we use to craft our trade, develop our ideas and express our inspiration are more abundant and low cost then ever. Laser Cutters, 3D Printers and CNC rigs are just a few of the latest tools in the creative toolkit. With the help of these technologies and the software that governs them, we are able to assemble our thoughts and ideas into three dimensional form.
And the resolution that we're able to work at is getting better all the time. What happens when cutting edge research breaches the confines of labs and enters the world at large? What does that mean for technology, entertainment and even our very safety...
