Adam Savage's Maker Tour: MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms (Part 1)

quote [ So Digikey stocks 500,000 types of resistors, 500,000 types of capacitors, 500,000 types of inductors... Will's assembler can make all of those out of 3 parts. Conducting insulating and resistive. And with about 20 parts we can make the motors and everything else. The assemblers get rid of all of the different machines and supply chains and puts them all into one machine. ]

This was fascinating to see how things are progressing behind the scenes of all the articles I've read on this tech over the years. We could be working towards a post scarcity society before most of us pass from this earth, if you all could just GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!
Parts 2-4 in extended.

You might get one before you die, but at this rate it will have so much DRM on it that it will pretty much be useless.

This is pretty amazing stuff, but I don't think I'm smart enough to understand it.
