Our pal (and Maker profiled in MAKE 01) Neil Gershenfeld is in Fortune magazine/CNN – “According to MIT’s Neil Gershenfeld, the digital revolution is over, and the good guys won. The next big change will be about manufacturing. Anyone with a PC will be able to build anything just by hitting ‘print.’
Imagine a machine with the ability to manufacture anything. Now imagine that machine in your living room. What would you build first? Would you start a business? Would you ever buy anything retail again? According to MIT physicist Neil Gershenfeld, it’s not too early to think about these questions, because that machine, which he calls a personal fabricator, is not so far off – or so far-fetched – as you might think.” – Link.

- Welcome to the Fab Lab – Neil Gershenfeld shows us that personal fabrication can be fabulous. The teacher of MIT’s course “How to Make (Almost) Anything” gives us a tour of the Boston fab lab, one of a growing network of field labs all over the world. MAKE 01 – Page 23.
