You MUST listen to this episode. Normally when we talk about a rapid prototyping machine, we’re talking a $45,000 price tag. Now here’s this UK-based scientist, Dr. Adrian Bowyer, who has designed one that sells for around $750! This is not a pipe-dream: many have been sold already and they’re all working fine in the field. But that’s not all: Adrian’s machine can make the parts needed to manufacture another one of itself. This is almost like a human’s ability to create another human … the machine is self-replicating. So PLEASE tune in on the discussion between Adrian and me. We will cover all the aspects of his revolutionary machine in 30 minutes of information-packed listening. If you’re into mechanical engineering you just HAVE to know about this!
