The future of making things is here, bringing with it radical changes in the way things are designed, made, and used. It’s disrupting every industry: architecture, engineering and construction; manufacturing; media and entertainment. With the right knowledge and tools, this disruption is your opportunity. In the future, successful businesses will approach the ideas and practices of design-make-use in a new, dynamic way. The process of creation has evolved beyond a simple linear path into integrated cycles of input and feedback.
