1. 3D Printer Works! Watch the Video: I am an early experimenter with emerging technology. I had the first laptop, first laser printer, first video conferencing suite and more. Now, we are deeply intrigued by the rise of 3D Printing. Basically, we can take a 3D diagram and “print” an object using heated plastic and a robotic platform. Early 3D printers were exciting but didn’t really work. But, this has radically changed with a new printer called Cubify thatm, for $1,300, easily, quickly and expertly prints objects for you, including your own adaptions of these diagrams. We have been printing small toys, iPhone covers and other early elements. Soon we will be able to use these in manufacturing and for retailing. And, they are powerful technologies to show learners how something is really made. Here is a 4 minute video from our Learning LAB of the Cubify in action: http://www.masie.com/Research-and-Articles/3dprinter2.html
