The WELL: Bruce Sterling and Jon Lebkowsky: State of the World 2014.

—> “#1. The 3d printer guys. Just so interesting! Gotta love
them!”

*Well, the 3D crowd did have a pretty good time of it in 2013. Then
their little hobby markets started saturating, and also some cruel
patent-trolling broke out. They’re still doing okay, but the buzz of
2014 has moved to “wearables.” Whatever that is. “Wearables” means
all kinds of stuff. A 3DPrinter is a genuine, kind-of functional
machine, but a “wearable” is pretty vaporware, almost as vague as
“nanotechnology.”

*When wearables arrive, I hope they’re Italian. If you’ve gotta wear
the damn things all the time, they ought to at least look elegant.

3D printing + Wearables … with Italian origins… sounds like our Arduino-compatible line (FLORA, GEMMA) and our recent 3D + wearables projects and videos with Becky, Noe and Pedro!
