3D printing with features that consumers can design and order online.
An exhibition titled "The Future is Here" will be held from July 24 to November 3, at Design Museum in London, UK. It will present the changes in manufacturing that are transforming our world, such as new manufacturing techniques involving the users of products, revolutionising the role of the consumer, and the way we manufacture, fund, distribute, and buy everything from cars to shoes.
Mass customization is the central story: from trainer manufacturers offering personalised shoes on a global scale, to 3D printed dolls with features that consumers can design and order online. At the exhibition, a carbon loom invented by Lexus to weave car parts such as steering wheels and dashboards from strong carbon fibre will be represented, and other exhibits include an open-source approach to architecture, the WikiHouse.
Emerging technologies and platforms such as crowd funding, social
networking digital looms, online marketplaces, 3D printing, nanotechnology, biotech, networked manufacturing, CNC (computer numerical controlled) routing and open-source micro computing, are all removing the barriers of access to manufacturing. It is the role of designers and the design process to participate in exciting new technologies, so that more people than ever before can take part in the production of our physical world.
Design Museum is collaborating with the UK’s innovation agency, the Technology Strategy Board, to deliver this major new exhibition.
