Imagine a world in which your own personalized electronic products could be made by you, in your own home. Sound like Science Fiction? Well it might not be as futuristic as you think...According to the acclaimed techno-prognosticator Neil Gershenfeld, the next big thing is personal fabrication - the ability, literally, to make your own products, in your own home, with a miniaturized machine that combines consumer electronics with industrial tools. It might sound far-fetched, but in fact it is exactly where the 'digital revolution' was at the dawn of the age of personal computers. Personal fabricators are tomorrow's personal computers. They will bring the programmability of the digital world to the rest of the world, by being able to make anything (including themselves).Über den Autor:
