One day we’ll print our clothing and recycle with a push of the button. That is the theory many hold , so how will that affect local creatives and more importantly how do you prepare them and level the playing field. I was first introduced to 3d printing by Zac and Bre of Makerbot in 2009 at FashionCamp a NY fashion unconference. I watched as they printed out a bracelet… a year later we printed buttons in the Fashioncamp logo… Forward to 2015 and we have the image on the right and in this video. That was just 6 years ago
On the other hand I’m now getting local manufactures to use gmail, and google docs, to explore how Twitter can impact their businesses, video and live- streaming. Speaking soft circuitry, solar inks is speaking a different language.
The question that keeps me up;-
“How does one prepare the local sector to survive or integrate these shifts so that 30 years down the line they are not obsolete?”
