Our work environments are going to be changing a lot in the future. Everybody knows that robots and 3D printers are going to take over. As the below video from GE shows, in the future 3D printers will help create a new industrial revolution. In fact, they are already doing it. Collaborative design teams on a global scale, rapid prototyping, and leaner, more customizable manufacturing are in the cards. In the future, factories can make as many things as there are people to imagine them.
The future of manufacturing sounds quite exciting. More innovation, more customization, and leaner processes. This is already well underway.
