Wale, 

3D printing is evolving very fast. In no time it will become even more common as part as the supply chains.

Yeah, i think you are right about 3D especially when its prices begin to plummet.  3D printing may be a major boost for supply chain tech.

Hailey, 

Yes, clothing manufacturers are using 3D printing, too. I saw some prototypes last year at the Design Museum exhibition on additive manufacturing in London.

I have been at a global supply chain confernece today and the speaker from Patagonia (the clothing manufacturer) mentioned 3D printing as being very important for them in creating models and prototypes. I'm sure the electronics industry can say the same.

That sounds awful. I'd better watch what I eat. Or don't eat at all, just in case.

Rich,

"Or, you mean your future self wrote them and they appeared in the past."

Maybe. Sometimes I get confused if it's past, or future when I travel in the Tardis.

Rich, 

"Wait until we have 4D printing."

4D printing already exists. You should have a look at what I write. I wrote two stories about 4D printing for EBN last year.
