Rapid Prototype Your Life

The time is now to make anything you can imagine

The tools are at hand to free you from the bonds of consumer slavery. No longer must you rely on distant and faceless factories or bow down before the false idols of mass produced consumer manufactured items. Never again look into the aisles of oblivion filled with mass produced products. Take rapid prototype manufacturing into your life and return to a time before corporations robbed you of our individualism. A cottage industry paradise awaits those with the digital skills and the means to acquire or build the machines that can actualize the items that exist now only in your imagination.

Presenting research into the potential to replace all consumer products with personally designed and built items utilizing rapid prototyping manufacturing.

This talk will present an overview of the rapid prototype machines available and take the audience on a visual adventure into the beautiful world of rapid prototyping machinery with enough luscious graphic detail to make even the most die-hard luddite salivate with lust for the dream fulfilling technology.

Projects to get beginners started and initiated into the rapid prototype lifestyle and familiar with the principals and techniques of rapid prototyping will be shared and source code provided online. These projects will be shared to get you started with rapid prototype machinery and break the cycle of consumer desperation. Many pathways will be presented leading to a future of wonderful digitally sharable objects.
