*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.
