Yes, Ann, good point. It will probably take awhile before materials advance to the point where they would be comfortable. Still, it's a nice idea to think about...and I imagine someday the technology will catch up!
It's true Charles that Haute Couture is never comfortable. Like everything on the runway, it's not for the real world. 3D printed jewelry is pleasant though. That's been available at the MOMA store for years.
The rise of 3D printing, for low quantity items, makes all kinds of sense to me. But I wonder for a smartphone case if they will really be able to compete on price with manufacturers who are obviously offering a smaller selection of product but have the advantage of mass quantities.
Lauren I believe that this 3D printing will greatly reduce the cost by reducing sock maintaining, transportation no labor involvement of production
Imagine a shoo shop where they are having only the sample or some IPods where will show all the possible designs and colours. Customer walk in to the shop and do the modification he likes to have and print a shoo jest for him.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
