Skilled Work, Without the Worker

“While the many robots in auto factories typically perform only one function, in the new Tesla factory in Fremont, Calif., a robot might do up to four: welding, riveting, bonding and installing a component.” “This is the future. A new

FOLD FLAT 3D PRINTER!!!

Emmanuel Gilloz, a self-described “designer-geek-idealist” has invented the FoldaRap, a foldable version of the open-source RepRap 3D printer. While it’s more of a fold flat 3D printer, as it requires assembly rather than simply unfurling like an ironing board, it’s
