Designing and Building Reality

Reminds us of our meeting with Neil Gershenfeld at the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms ...  An enlightening experience about the future of fabrication. ...  Taking it beyond 3D Printing.  

We are on the threshold of a third digital revolution via computer fabrication, according to a new book.

Designing-RealityThe first two digital revolutions — computing and communications — transformed society. Now comes the third, which is fabrication, argues the new book, Designing Reality: How to Survive and Thrive in the Third Digital Revolution. The authors say that computerized fabrication such as 3-D printing is the beginning of a trend to change data into objects. But like any revolution, not all populations will benefit equally. The book, which is aimed at helping people prepare for the next tech wave, was written by three brothers: Alan Gershenfeld, president of E-Line Media and former chairman of Games for Change; Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, a professor at Brandeis University; and Neil Gershenfeld, who heads The Center for Bits and Atoms at MIT. Alan Gerhsenfeld and Cutcher-Gershenfeld talked about their book on the Knowledge@Wharton show, which airs on SiriusXM channel 111.
