    The story starts for me back in the 1980s when one of my partners told us we had to buy a machine called a BBC micro and learn how to program it. When someone asked him what can it do, apart from play space invaders, I was told as a "for example", I could store my wife's recipes. To view results we would ...

    If we consider the miniaturization era from year 1963 to 2014 then the computing power of classical computer has increased multi-fold and with the increasing growth in the computing power for every two years the cost per chip has dropped exponentially from few million dollar to few dollars, or even less than dollar per chip. The fabrication processes and manufacturing techniques have evolved dramatically in the past few decades. In the classical computer system the data operates on ...

The situation today is like it was with the early personal computers, at first it was the hobbyists who had them and most other people wondered what they would use one for. But over time their usefulness became obvious and the difficulty of acquiring, using and supporting them diminished by leaps and bounds. So, with 3D printers ...
