Convergence is accelerating disruption. Exponential technologies are colliding into each other, reinventing products, services, and industries. Over the course of my next five blogs, I’m going to summarize key insights from my annual CEO Summit called Abundance360 that takes place every January in Beverly Hills. We’ll look at 3D printing, AI, energy and transportation, VR/AR, and blockchain. Today, let’s dive into 3D printing… To start us off, let’s get some context on the technology itself. 3D printing (additive or augmented manufacturing) translates digital files into three-dimensional objects by layering material in a process known as additive manufacturing. Printheads release matter in precise orientations that can produce complex structures, ranging from jewelry to three-story homes. 250 materials : Current 3D printers can produce functional part- and full-color objects from over 250 different materials, including metals, plastics, ceramics, glass, rubber, leather, stem cells, and even chocolate. 100x faster : More recently, […]
