Bre Pettis and MakerBot 3D printer at TED2012

[Video Link] I'm here at TED2012! Here's a short interview with Bre Pettis, co-founder of MakerBot Industries. He shares news about the new Replicator 3D printer, and the printing of an old school mechanical clock with an escapement mechanism. (I called it a "catchment mechanism" in the video -- oops.")


  1. The guy is right: in our days we are irreversibly used to sharing/drawing creative knowledge instantly, getting closer and closer to the state of prehistoric peoples: Silent Knowledge, a state where by the virtue of them not having a large mental inventory (and thus constant mental chatter) there was nothing to cloud their (our) inherent link with energy of all intensities in and around us…

    Funny thing is, even only Youtube functions this way. Even without receiving blueprint contures for a printer, others’ creative ideas can serve Your project. Like, today i had to fit these two humbucker pickups on a guitar but combining them with a third pickup and a split switch and i could see the whole wiring in an instant on youtube. Two hours later it’s done!

    Hopefully this our getting used to instant knowledge will prevent guys like Rockefeller and & shutting/filtering  the Internet as they declare since some 5 years (their agenda getting exposed like never before thanks to internet)–people just wouldn’t let them and take a step back…
