Via Scoop.itDigital Fabrication – teaching using new technology

What are the new possibilities of manufacturing?
Taken as a whole, digital fabrication creates whole new possibilities. They include:   Enhancing innovation: The potential to experiment very cheaply in close proximity to customers offers huge promise for enhanced innovation.   Rediscovering the joy of making things: Perhaps the most important aspect of the transformation will be the effect it will have on us–the social impact of digital manufacture. Over the last century, we have gotten used to having everything made for us. Where computers enslaved us, now is it possible that they might liberate us? In the same way that personal computers have turned us all into amateur computer technicians and software administrators, so digital manufacture has the possibility of turning us all into amateur engineers who rediscover the joy of making things.
