Jeffrey Lipton Explains 3D Printing

3D Printing researcher Jeffrey Lipton delivers a 5 minute talk introducing 3D printing at Ignite Ithaca. Jeffrey works on the Fab@Home project, one of several open source 3D printer development initiatives. 
 
In the talk Lipton explains in a rather excited manner that the introduction of 3D printing technology will produce another manufacturing revolution, transitioning us from the era of mass production to personal production. He predicts a world where unique items will be produced as required by individuals, and we won’t be forced to accept identical mass produced items. He says:
 
Why do we need warehouses? Why do we stockpile things?
 
We agree. But will this happen? Certainly, and it will be just as exciting as watching the very animated Jeffrey.
