Discussion on Impact of 3D Printing

3D Printing... A technology that is turning standard manufacturing and distribution upside down, and placing innovation into the hands of the "innovators". Let's have a discussion on the some of the current 3D printing potential uses and trends of this paradigm breaking technologies, as well as the impact it could have on society at large.

Suggested meeting place(s): We'll start our discussion at the Kogod Courtyard in the National Portrait Gallery then move over to District of Pi Pizzeria, OR start and finish @ Teaism near the Archives Metro.

    Rick, this is the webpage I was telling you about:

    http://www.adafruit.com­

    It sell the Arduino as well as the Raspberry and other electronics. They do offer a 3D printer but as I mentioned is mostly geared for toys/ novelty items.

    It was nice to meet all of you, new faces and old ones.

    Rick, again sorry that I had to leave early and please let me know if what I left was good enough to cover my side of the bill.

    See you all next time.

    Thanks, all, for coming out! It was great meeting a few new fellow futurists, and catching up with those of you I've already met, too. I look forward to the next one.

    Sorry Futuristas, I have an unavoidable conflict for Thursday. If I live long enough, maybe the life-extension meeting...
