3D printing is not going to catapult us into the future, but rather it's going to connect us with our heritage; and it's going to usher in a new era of localized, distributed manufacturing that is actually based on digital fabrication.In this video you can see the first object ever 3D printed in 1983 by Chuck Hull. Also, hear about the incredible story of 3D System's challenge to print Amanda Boxtel's a custom-fit and more feminine EKSO Bionics exoskeleton. He even talks about kids and new tools such as haptics!

Avi Reichental's TED talk published
Avi Reichental of 3D Systems gave a TED talk back in March 2014. It was recently posted for our viewing pleasure. If you enjoy 3D printing, please do yourself a favor and watch it. :)
Of course my favorite Avi quote is "With 3D printing, complexity is free."
